Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB)’s chief executive and co-founder, Mark Zuckerberg announced the availability of a new tool for Facebook users who want to show their support of marriage equality. The announcement and the launch of the tool dubbed “Celebrate Pride” came shortly after the ruling of same-sex marriage by a U.S Supreme Court, which was found to be an ultimate Constitutional right.

On one of his posts, Zuckerberg expressed his joy over the fact that the Facebook community, as well as a majority of his friends, can equally celebrate their love. However, he was quick to state that there is still much that needs to be done to achieve full parity for everyone within the community. However, so far so good as everything seems to be moving in the right direction.
Apparently, Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) is just one of the many technological Companies that have been supporting marriage equality. Other notable Companies included Google and Amazon. In fact, jointly with Microsoft, these Companies had moved to the Supreme Court and filed the friend of the court papers for a case involving the Defense of Marriage Act.
Apple is known to have been in the lineup of supporting benefits accrued from same-sex marriage since 1963. Apple CEO Tim Cook was one of the many celebrating CEO.
According to these Companies, the lack of federal recognition of same- sex marriages was a demotivating aspect which affected Company morale. Also, they argued that the element of tax benefits became so complicated.
Numerous technological Companies continued to tweet to show their support and solidarity to the ruling. It was a day that was marked with so much victory and from the many tweets; you would tell of how much the advocates of same-sex marriage had persevered.
