Here is something to "Like" on Facebook.
Facebook has created a new relationship status option that allows same-sex couples to declare they are "in a domestic partnership" or "in a civil union."
Up until now, Facebook limited the relationship status options including single, in a relationship, married, and it's complicated. But a Facebook spokesman said today that users have been requesting options for them to recognize their civil unions or domestic partnerships.
"Facebook's noteworthy move also highlights the vast majority of same-sex couples living in states where there are no legal protections whatsoever," Barrios added.
It also probably makes good business sense not to alienate 10 percent of the U.S. population.
The new designations are limited to the U.S., Canada, U.K, France, and Australia. The countries that criminalize homosexuality, including the Middle East and Africa, will not see these options.
