How To Add a Rainbow Filter to Your Facebook Photo

The Supreme Court of the United States has handed down a 5 to 4 verdict that legalizes marriage for gay and lesbian couples nationwide. The decision immediately started trending on Facebook. As a celebration of that decision and, possibly, in honor of Gay Pride Weekend in New York City, the social network has given users a way to wear their pride on their profile photo. With a couple very simple steps, you can add a rainbow filter to your picture. Here's how.

1. Sign into your Facebook account. 

2. Visit and click "Use as profile picture."

3. The filter has been applied and will appear on your profile page.
