NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Groups on the popular networking site Facebook may help educate men about HIV prevention and testing, a new study suggests.

Researchers found that specially-created Facebook social media groups helped encourage men who have sex with men to reach out for information about testing themselves at home for HIV.

The study is “really demonstrating a way to take what we already know to be effective… and translating it into the digital realm,” Sheana Bull, professor and chair of the Department of Community and Behavioral Health at the Colorado School of Public Health in Denver, said.

“I think it does have a lot of potential and a lot of promise,” said Bull, who wasn’t involved with the new study.

U.S. Marine Corps captain Matthew Phelps gets down on one knee to propose to partner Ben Schock on Saturday night in the first same-sex marriage proposal at the White House.

U.S. Marine Corps captain Matthew Phelps asked, and his partner Ben Schock said yes.

On Saturday night, Phelps was photographed getting down on one knee in what is believed to be the first same-sex marriage proposal ever made in the White House. The couple’s engagement came 14 months after the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell’’ policy officially ended, and the joyful photo was quickly passed around on social media shortly after it was posted online by the American Military Partner Association. The proposal occurred while Phelps and Schock were taking a Christmas tour of the White House together.

“Such a special night surrounded by wonderful people in an amazing place, and the best is still yet to come,” Phelps wrote on his Facebook page. “Thanks for all the wonderful greetings and messages, and thanks to Barack Obama and Michelle Obama for lending us your home for the occasion!”

“Such a wonderful night for us, and it’s received so much attention on Facebook!’’ Phelps also wrote on his blog. “Really, the only thing on my mind was making it a memorable and unforgettable night for Ben. Thank you all for the well wishes!!”  FULL ARTICLE
