Love wins on Social Media

The Supreme Court in the United States, ruled by a 5-to-4 vote on Friday that the Constitution guarantees a right to same-sex marriage. This has been a long awaited victory for same sex couples.

Hundreds of elated people were waving rainbow flags and holding signs outside the court plaza with the sentiment: “Love has won.”

Not long after the new law was announced, thousands took to social media to describe the victory. On Twitter the hashtag #LoveWins was trending and users could also add a rainbow heart to their tweet. Meanwhile on Facebook there is an app, which allows people to show their support by adding a rainbow filter to their profile picture. CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg personally made the announcement about the celebrate pride tool.  Social media can play a positive role in current affairs and allow users to express their opinions and share these with others. There were those who took to social to show their anguish about the decision but this didn’t stop the majority of people from showing their support. Love definitely wins in 2015, isn’t it about time?
