The US Supreme Court today ruled in favor of same sex marriages, making it legal across all 50 states of America. In a bid to celebrate this revolutionary step, Facebook unveiled a new tool that transforms your profile into a superimposed rainbow colored wonder, that showcases your support towards equal civil rights.

Here’s how it works: Just click on this facebook.com/celebratepride link, login with your Facebook account, and the platform will automatically superimpose the rainbow banner on your profile picture. It will give you an option to edit caption, and then ask you if you want to use this as your profile picture. After clicking on ‘Use as profile photo’, your profile picture will automatically be changed into the one that Facebook tailor made for ‘celebrating pride’.

Facebook and Twitter was abuzz with praises for the Supreme Court decision. Tech gurus like Mark Zuckerberg, Tim Cook and Satya Nadella took to social media to hail this monumental step.
