Maybe themed profile pictures don’t have to always be about a serious cause: Facebook has teamed up with Lucasfilm to let its users add a lightsaber to their profile picture (hat tip to Techcrunch).
Users just have to visit the official Star Wars page on Facebook to edit and customise their profile picture. The image reverts to its original form after a predetermined period of time, with one week being the default option.
You can choose either a blue lightsaber (the colour representing the Jedi) or a red lightsaber (the colour representing the Sith).
This isn’t the first time Facebook has allowed its users to easily edit their profile picture. In the past, Facebook has allowed its users to celebrate marriage equality with themed profile pictures, and more recently, it has teamed up with a variety of sports leagues and clubs to customise profile pictures.
“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is slated to be released in a cinema near you on 17th December 2015.
