Facebook rolls out gay wedding icons
Facebook has now made it simple to announce same-sex marriages on the social networking site by rolling out two new icons analogous to the ones heterosexual couples have long used
Facebook has offered two timeline icons that show two little grooms and two little brides, to represent gay marriage.
Earlier, anybody who got married and announced it on Facebook would find the declaration noted under the icon of a little bride and little groom ‘cake topper’, regardless of whether the wedding was between a man and a woman or two women or two men.
The new icons had a major debut over the weekend, after a pair of small grooms appeared over the wedding announcement of Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes to Sean Eldridge.
Almost 2,000 people, hit the like button on the announcement.
