Facebook are bringing the magic to an anniversary that is very special for millions of people all over the world. It was 20 years ago today that J. K. Rowling invited the rest of the world into the magical world she’d created. Harry Potter has had a profound effect on all who’ve read it and that seems to include, Bond Villain in waiting, Mark Zuckerberg.
20 years ago today a world that I had lived in alone was suddenly open to others. It's been wonderful. Thank you.#HarryPotter20

Either that or he is just jumping on the #HarryPotter20 bandwagon. To celebrate Harry’s break from his teenage years Facebook has decided to splash our news feeds with a little magic, but only for those who know how to find it.
First off, you’ll have to type the words Harry Potter, Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff in either a comment or post. It works just as well if you type them all. The words will then be posted in the colors of their respective house and a wand will give your news feed a little blast of magic.
You can then get the wand out whenever you want by clicking on the magical words in the comment or post. It isn’t much, but it is something. Let us know what Hogwarts House you’re in in the comments to test it out.
