Facebook unleashes the force with lightsaber profile feature

12377740_516038.8ffc5102048.w300As the highly anticipated “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” finally hits cinema screens this week, Facebook is getting in on the action.

The social network is allowing users to add a lightsaber to their profile picture in honor of the latest installment of the sci-fi franchise, The Verge reports.

Fans can choose between an evil red or an honest blue weapon, depending on which side they identify with most.

The development is the latest experiment by Facebook when it comes to profile pictures — last month the company rolled out the option to use flag filters, while sports logos are also available. -AFP/Relaxnews
