According to a report released last week, roughly 800,000 people came out gay on Facebook last year.

The social media giant reported its findings to help mark Spirit Day, which calls for an end to the bullying of LGBT youth, and National Coming Out.

“We report three major trends,” Facebook said in its report, titled America's Coming Out on Facebook. “First, consistent with popular perceptions, the last year has witnessed steady growth in the number and rate of people coming out on Facebook. Second, support for LGBT groups has likewise increased. Finally, the Supreme Court Obergefell ruling had a strong effect on the number of people coming out on Facebook and support for LGBT groups.”

According to Facebook, roughly 800,000 Americans came out over the last 12 months, which is defined as either updating a profile to express a same-gender attraction or to specify a custom gender.

“Not only has the total number of Americans who have come out on Facebook risen dramatically [since October 2014], but so has the number coming out each day. The number of people on Facebook coming out per day is on track to be three times what it was a year ago.”

On June 26, the day the Supreme Court struck down gay marriage bans nationwide, one out of every five people who changed their status on Facebook did so to “reflect a same-gender interest,” doubling the average daily coming out rate.

Facebook said that 6 million Americans have come out on Facebook.
