Facebook includes gay community in relationship statuses

PALO ALTO, CA (CNN) - Members of the gay community now have a way to describe their relationship status on Facebook.

The social network added the updates: "In a civil union" and "In a domestic partnership" on Thursday.

Facebook has not commented on the additions, but a national gay rights group applauded the website for setting a standard of inclusion for social media.
