Facebook Has A Tool That Lets You Rainbow-ify Your Profile Pic

While same-sex marriage has been legalized over the years in different states across the country, not all states are on board. However it seems that it will no longer matter as the US Supreme Court has handed down a historical ruling in which they are striking down the ban on same-sex marriage, calling the bans unconstitutional.

What does this mean? Basically it means that even if a state had previously banned it, the Supreme Court’s ruling means that ban has since been overturned and it is now legal to get married to someone of the same gender in the entire country. This is good news and it is also why a lot of companies have changed their logo to the rainbow.which is the symbol of the LGBT community.

That being said if you want to show your support for this historical ruling, Facebook has created a tool to allow you to do so. All you’d have to do is surf on over to its Celebrate Pride page in which an opaque rainbow design will be overlaid on your existing profile photo, thus making it easy for users to show their support without having to do the editing themselves.

Facebook isn’t the only company that is showing their support. Google has started displaying the rainbow colors on its search pages related to the topic at hand, and Apple has started to promote LGBT content on its App Store as well.
