Social Scanner – September 11, 2015

BB-8 stays on a roll and more from Star Wars fans on social media!

As a member of the (very small) social media team here at Lucasfilm, I have the honor of reading, responding to, laughing at, loving, and sharing all of your Star Wars conversations every day. Our fans are creative, passionate, funny, and very active across the Internet; every Friday, I’ll share my favorite social media posts from the week in the Social Scanner, so show me what you’ve got!

I know I covered Force Friday a bit last week, but I feel it deserves another look due to the sheer impact I’ve seen across social media. Last week fans were introduced to a new world of possibilities for sharing their love of Star Wars. It’s been really fun to watch everyone play, create, and connect with their new collections.

It’s no secret that one character completely stole the show. That BB-8, so hot right now.
