Is Facebook now the ‘in’ place to come out of the closet?

Are Facebook outings common occurrences? 

Two of my co-workers have mentioned stories about family members that were suspected of being gay outing themselves on Facebook.

One just said “I thought that my aunt was a lesbian, and there it is: ‘Interested in: Women’ on Facebook.”

Another had suspected a cousin was gay, and then one day, boom, “In a Relationship” with another guy.

Have people discovered similar things about their family/friends?  Does Facebook make it easier for people to come out?
