Milan - Over 26 million Facebook users worldwide between Friday and Monday changed their profile picture to a rainbow hue thanks to a filter made available by the social network to support the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) community. The images received over half a billion (565 million) "likes" and other comments.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, Leonardo di Caprio, Anne Hathaway, Arianna Huffington and Brazilian President Dilma Roussef are some of the Facebook users who chose to use the "rainbow filter" that was developed last week by two trainees in Mark Zuckerberg's group. The Facebook founder's profile also went rainbow. After 48 hours of intense work in the United States, the filter was made available to the general public in time for Gay Pride weekend and to celebrate the landmark ruling by the United States Supreme Court on the right to same-sex marriages.
