How do I edit basic info on my Facebook profile and choose who can see it?

You can edit your basic personal information (for example: gender, contact info, relationships, work, education). To edit your info:
  1. Click your profile picture in the top right of Facebook.
  2. Click About, then click Contact and Basic Info.
  3. Click or select to add information.
  4. Add or change the information you'd like to edit.
  5. Make changes to the privacy of your information by selecting the current privacy setting (example: Public, Friends or Only me).
  6. Click Save.
Keep in mind:
  • Some information on Facebook is always public. Learn more about public information on Facebook.
  • If you set your gender to Custom and select one or more genders, you can also select an audience for your custom gender. In addition to your custom gender, you'll choose a Pronoun. The pronoun you select is always public. This feature isn't available in all locations.
  • Your email has additional settings. Learn more about controlling who can see your email.
