Jul 03, 2012 12:13
Facebook continues to lead the way by adding new features that promote gay rights. It's latest venture involves launching new icons to help represent gay unions. Along with the standard bride-groom timeline icons, the social network now features bride-bride and groom-groom couples icons. The purpose of this new timeline feature is to allow same-sex couples to declare their marriage status on the site with icons that best reflect their relationship.
The feature was first noticed over the weekend when Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes married his partner Sean Eldridge. An icon of two grooms was added to Hughes’ Facebook Timeline to announce their wedding news. Facebook CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg was among one of the 1,800 members that Liked Hughes’ update.
Back iin February 2011, Facebook had also introduced two relationship options for those in the lebsian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, including “In a domestic partnership” and “In a civil union.” Facebook has also partnered with GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) to prevent anti-gay bullying from occurring on the site. It also launched a Network of Support panel with MTV’s A Thin Line campaign to address LGBT issues and launches a Stop Bullying: Speak Up campaign with Time Warner.
