Facebook Gives Same-Sex Couples New Marriage Icons

Facebook has rolled out a new feature providing additional recognition for its users who are married to a person of the same sex.

Now these users who have indicated on their Facebook timeline that they are married will be recognized by new same-sex marriage icons, rather than the marriage icon used for straight married couples.

This change follows several notable LGBT inclusion efforts by Facebook. Last year, Facebook added ‘In a Civil Union’ and ‘In a Domestic Partnership’ options to user profiles.
