Embrace the Force in your Facebook profile pics


Emma Clark

Facebook has added a new tool that lets you show off your love of Star Wars in your profile picture by adding a Jedi or Sith lightsaber.

Facebook has posted a tool that allows users to add a lightsaber to their profile photo. You can either choose a blue or red lightsaber, letting you pledge allegiance to either the Jedi or Sith.

To edit and customise your profile picture, you just have to visit the official Star Wars page on Facebook. There's a handy overlay that lets you change the position of the lightsaber and whether you're holding Finn's or Kylo Ren's.

The tool also gives you the option to set how long you'd like to change your profile picture for. By default, it will switch back after a week.

Facebook isn't the only brand to utilise the Force. Google has gone to great lengths in partnership with Disney to tweak its suite of apps based on which side of the Force you choose to side with.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be released on December 17th.
