What’s behind Facebook’s celebrate pride tool? Unveiling the facts!
Last year, Facebook celebrated its 10th year anniversary. The tech giant was born on the 4th of February, year 2004. All this started in a college dormitory, where the teenage Zuckerberg was playing hard to bring his vision into existence. Since then, Facebook has ruled the heart and mind of the world.
Recently, the tech giant was in the limelight after it has launched a tool in support of gay rights. The tool was named ‘Celebrate Pride’ after the Supreme Court declared gay rights as a fundamental constitutional right.
For most Facebook users, it’s one of the many ways by which Mark Zuckerberg expresses support on social issues. And they were happy indeed, until the critics came in between. According to the critics, the reason behind the launch of the app is somewhat different from what Zuckerberg says. While everyone’s entitled to their own opinion, let’s allow the readers to decide on the facts. Here, we have compiled everything that you need to know about the Celebrate Pride tool and the recent claims made.
1 Celebrate Pride
In support of the same-sex marriage, Facebook launched the Celebrate Pride tool shortly after the consideration of same-sex marriage in the Fundamental Rights of citizens.
With the tool, it enabled the users to turn their profile photos in rainbow shades. As you visit the ‘Celebrate pride’ tool, there will be a preview of your profile picture filtered with rainbow colors. And if you support the same-sex marriage, or even if the photos just look amusing to you, you can use it as your profile picture by clicking on the button ‘Use As Your Profile Picture’.
It was a great attempt by Facebook to let the world express their emotions in a colorful and vibrant way.
