Earlier, anybody who got married and announced it on Facebook would find the declaration noted under the icon of a little bride and little groom 'cake topper', regardless of whether the wedding was between a man and a woman or two women or two men.

The new icons had a major debut over the weekend, after a pair of small grooms appeared over the wedding announcement of Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes to his longtime boyfriend Sean Eldridge, The Los Angles Times reports.

According to the report, the new move has received a positive response from the social network's users.

Almost 2,000 people, including Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, hit the like button on the announcement.
