About this Deal

Small actions can have large impact when it comes to remembering the legacy of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Facebook's mobile application is displaying on Monday a logo inspired by the late justice, complete with a gavel, a heart and her signature collar.

The logo seems to only be displaying on the mobile version of the social network, coinciding with the pop-up effort from the company to drive voter registration.

The tech giant said its ballot-box push has surpassed the 2 million new voter registrations from Facebook, Instagram and Messenger users.

Whether the change is a political message is in the eye of the beholder. Twitter user @TheKevinRFoley said, "Shame on you Facebook" for displaying a political leaning, while @JustinoBrooks said, "Love today's Facebook logo."

Facebook did not immediately respond to USA TODAY's request for comment.

Ginsburg, 87, died late Friday following a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Her death creates a vacancy on the high court that President Donald Trump vowed over the weekend to fill with another woman.

Republicans are expected to move quickly in announcing a replacement for Ginsburg's seat before the 2020 presidential election. Both parties have pledged to make the future of the high court a major campaign issue.
