Feel Pride On Facebook With New Rainbow Emoji

Following the DOMA ruling, Facebook launched its latest emoji, a rainbow to signify “pride.”

As you see above, click on the smiley-face image below your status-update box, and then click the “feeling” drop-down menu. You should now see the option to select a rainbow icon under the “feeling” drop-down menu. If you do not see it right away, type in “pride” right after “feeling”, and it’ll magically appear.
A Facebook representative confirmed to Mashable yesterday that the new icon launched in light of the DOMA decision.
GLAAD informed us that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg also posted this status update yesterday about the Supreme Court rulings: “I’m proud that our country is moving in the right direction, and I’m happy for so many of my friends and their families. #PrideConnectsUs— feeling proud.”
