Are you tired of that boring black and white text on Facebook? Do you long for the days of MySpace where you could throw caution to the wind and just paint your profile page neon green? Well, you can't quite do that, but Facebook has introduced a new feature that could let you do the next best thing: adding background color to your posts.

To do so, tap the "What's on your mind" question (also known as the the empty text field) and start writing. You'll immediately see a color palette option below. Tap your favorite hue and, voila, your Facebook post will be bathed in color as in the image above. Right now, the feature is only available to Android users, but anyone on Facebook should be able to see those stylized posts. It's rolling out to the world starting this week, so get ready for your News Feed to be way more colorful, whether you like it or not.
