Facebook users can now declare their relationships in a few new ways. The options -- “in a civil union” and “in a domestic partnership.” This decision came after consulting with Facebook’s Network of Support - a partnership with gay and lesbian groups designed to help fight cyberbullying against the LGBT community.
A blogger for Forbes says -- this is a big step toward changing LGBT norms.
“... with more than half a billion users across the world, Facebook is larger than all but a few governments on the planet. Facebook’s policies start to become a new norm and help define what people think should be POLICIES.”
And PC World notes - other aspects of social media have already embraced the gay community...
“ ...social gaming is making strides as well. ... Facebook game ‘FrontierVille’ boasts roughly 650,000 same-sex marriages. While same-sex avatar marriages may not spell ‘inclusion’ or ‘social change’ to you, to me it is an indication that the perception of homosexuality is changing for the better.”
But Mashable says -- in the long run, this change may not mean much.
“... the civil union/domestic partnership distinction is one that many LGBT groups are currently trying to erase. In fact, marriage equality is one of the key campaigning points for many groups in the [Network of Support] ... And many couples in same-sex relationships who have already defined themselves on Facebook as ‘married’ aren’t necessarily eager to adopt the new nomenclature.”
And XTRA!, a Canadian gay and lesbian news site, says that if Facebook were trying to reach the LGBT audience, they really missed the mark in the ‘transgender’ category.
“Before we start congratulating Facebook for this relatively insignificant change, let's compare the social networking site's gender options with those of a few other popular social media sites:”
Flickr lets a user choose from “female”, “male”, “other” or “rather not say”. Twitter doesn’t ask for a gender and YouTube lists “No gender” as an option.
For now, these options are available in the Australia, Canada, France, the US and the UK. However, if there are enough requests in other countries, they too will have these options.

In 1995, R.J. Reynolds targeted gays in a marketing campaign titled Project SCUM. Today, an edgy Delicious Lesbian Kisses (DLK) campaign draws attention to smoking among lesbians; The Network for LGBT Health Equity helps bridge the gap between Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) organizations and tobacco control funding; and the CRUSH campaign uses ‘cuties’ to spread the message that being tobacco free is sexy.
