Facebook has rolled out a new tool that lets anyone easily show off their support for marriage equality. Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg personally announced the Celebrate Pride tool on his personal page following the US Supreme Court's ruling that same-sex couples have the constitutional right to marry. The tool allows users to superimpose a rainbow over their profile picture with a click of a button.

Want to show off your support? Here's how:

  • Make sure you a logged into your Facebook account
  • Click this link to open the Celebrate Pride tool
  • Optional: Edit your picture description
  • Tap the blue "Use as Profile Picture" button

Facebook is not alone in its support for marriage equality. Silicon Valley companies such as Apple, Google, Uber and Salesforce all voiced their support on social media channels throughout the day. Even the White House donned a rainbow hue to celebrate the landmark victory.

On Twitter, you can automatically make a tiny rainbow heart appear in your tweet by including the #LoveWins hashtag.

For Pride Month, Google created a set of adorable, pride-filled emojis. In a Google Hangout, if you type the words "happy pride", you'll get a visit from rainbowed revelers or two mustachioed emojis smooching.
