Snapchat got in on the action, too.

Interest in the ruling, at least initially, appeared to be higher in the U.S. than in other countries. Google searches around gay marriage were concentrated primarily in the U.S. and Canada, according to a Google Trends report.
But the Snapchat feed was made available to users globally, as was the Facebook rainbow filter.
