New Delhi: Seems Facebook is also gripped with Star Wars fever! If you are a huge Star Wars fan too, this news is for you! To celebrate the release of the seventh Star Wars film ( Star Wars The Force Awakens ) Facebook now lets you add a bit of the Force to your profile pictures.

"Awaken the Force within by adding Finn's lightsaber to your profile picture," says the Facebook post of Star Wars.

Depending on your loyalty, you can choose between totally-evil red and Luke's blue.

Here's how to add a lightsaber to your profile picture –

  1. Log into your Facebook account and follow this link, Show Your Game Face 
  2. Switch the drop-down from Argentine Primera Division to Star Wars, then click on one of the two Star Wars icons below to toggle between red and blue Lightsabers.
  3. Use the slider below your profile picture to adjust its size to fit, or if you prefer click Change picture below to instead set a different photo as your profile image.
  4. Facebook lets you choose how long you want to use the Lightsaber profile picture. Click the drop-down menu next to 'Switch back to previous profile picture in' and select from either 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week or Never.

May the Force awaken!
