Facebook is “Feeling Prideful”

Facebook Pride


Many high-profile people and companies have gone to social media to show their support for the Supreme Court Rulings on Wednesday. With DOMA and Prop 8 in California being overturned, there is a lot to be happy about!

In April, Facebook made it so users can use emoticons in their status updates. People can feel sad, meh, wonderful and more. Just recently, Facebook has made being prideful a bit easier. Users can now insert a new rainbow emoticon into their status updates. Facebook also launched the hashtag #PrideConnectsUs to help users show their pride.

Facebook posted a status on their official page, which got over 90 million likes.

Approximately 70% of people on Facebook in the U.S. are connected to a friend who has expressly identified themselves as gay, lesbian or bisexual on their timeline.

To show your pride on Facebook, follow these simple steps outlined by GLAAD:

1. Compose a new status
2. Click on the emoticon (next to the camera icon), choose Feeling
3. Type in “pride” after Feeling
4. The Pride rainbow will be added to your status
