Not satisfied by the hyperspeed assault of "Star Wars" commercials, toys and, yes, breakfast foods? Then get ready to waste time on the Internet.

Everyone from Spotify to Facebook are giving users ways to express their fandom. Don't sit there like Jabba the Hutt; use the force of your index finger to click your way to "Star Wars" glory.



Find out who your "Star Wars" soulmate is with Spotify's new online matching tool. For example, this NBC News writer's love of "classic rock," "country," and "outlaw country" matched him with Han Solo, which is awesome, because there is pretty much nobody cooler than Han Solo ... except for maybe Darth Vader.


"Star Wars" obsessives can now add an image of a lightsaber to their profile picture. Choose the dark side, light side, or the "I'm an adult who doesn't have time for this" side.


Facebook has also added a collection of "Star Wars"-themed stickers, which prove that the battle for the universe can be adorable.

Star Wars/Google


Users of Gmail, Google Maps, YouTube, Waze and other Google services can now add a "Star Wars" theme to them.

If that's not enough, the company is giving away free "Star War"-themed Google Cardboard sets that let users explore virtual reality with their own smartphone.

Still not satisfied? Just Google "A long time ago in a galaxy far far away" and enjoy the show.


Just raving about "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" on Twitter isn't enough. Share #StarWarsEmojis by tweeting out hashtags with the names of characters from the movie, like #BB8 and #FinnAwakens.


How fun is it? Even the lead of another space opera, "Guardians of the Galaxy," couldn't resist dropping a few emoji.
