Facebook Adds Icons for Same-Sex Couples

Facebook has announced that it has added icons to the social network service for profiles of people who are in same-sex relationships. Same-sex couples now have the option of choosing female female and male male icons to reflect their chosen relationships.

Previously they only icon available was a male and female. This comes after Facebook added in options for relationship statuses last year that included "In a Civil union" and "In a Domestic Partnership."

"Following Facebook's addition of domestic partnership and civil union to profile options last year, these new marriage icons for timeline are another important way for same-sex couples to be recognized. This move is the latest in a series of measures Facebook has taken to support and include the LGBT community, which earned it the distinction of being the first social media company to receive a GLAAD Media Award earlier this year."
