Facebook will now include special icons for same-sex couples who indicate that they're married on Facebook. Just a few weeks ago, developers realized that Apple introduced same-sex couple emojis in iOS 6. The times they are a-changing.

Now, users who specify that they are in a same-sex marriage will see icons featuring two men or two women pop up on their Facebook Timelines on the date that the marriage became official. Last year Facebook added the "In a Civil Union" and "In a Domestic Partnership" to its relationships statuses. [GLAAD via AllFacebook via Twitter]
