When is the politically correct time to revert from Rainbow profile to traditional profile in Facebook? Is one’s commitment to the cause directly proportional to the staying power of the profile?

About being politically correct. The Rainbow profile was an easy way to show one’s support of a special event — the Supreme Court decision — and your LGBT friends, but after a short period of time (24 hours to a week), it’s perfectly acceptable to revert to one’s regular profile. That will free you up to celebrate other events (the US Women’s Soccer Team winning the World Cup, a local election, a fundraiser…). If you want to use your Facebook profile to proclaim your strong position on a single issue, then perhaps you should keep the rainbow flag profile up permanently, but most people are not singularly focused on a specific issue.
