Parents just love using Facebook to post pictures of their children, the more over-the-top and embarrassing the better.

Mark Zuckerberg has proven us all wrong - he took to the platform he created to post a picture of his baby dressed as a Jedi, surrounded by Star Wars items.

The infant will no doubt be thrilled about the millions of people who have seen the baby pictures when she is a teen.

The picture is quite cute, however, and no doubt posted to celebrate "Star Wars: The Force Awakens".

Max, his daughter, is even pulling a brave and noble face to go with her costume. It's as if she knows she is a Jedi.

The most important thing to note about this photograph is that it proves Facebook is now the domain of mums and dads.

Anyone who does not have a child is an imposter.

It is not the place for youthful banter anymore, the teens have fled to Instagram and Snapchat.

Facebook is now officially the domain for baby photos and Minions memes.

Mr. Zuckerberg's post has been immensely popular with Facebook users.

Nearly two million people have 'liked' the post - making all of our profile pictures look rather unloved - and it has been shared almost 40,000 times.

Perhaps the force is actually strong with this one.
