"Somebody told me once, that in Belfast, you can almost tell what the people are earning by the name of the street they live on … So I started writing about a place where the streets have no name." — Bono

U2's MacPhisto photo filter now available on Facebook

(Because you really want to freak the you-know-what out of your non-U2 friends.)
@U2

U2 fans, wonder no more how you're going to pass the time in between legs of the Experience + Innocence tour.

The band has made available Bono's MacPhisto photo filter -- the same one he used during "Acrobat" during the North American leg this spring/summer -- as part of Facebook's camera effects. You can access it when taking a photo to post to your account and/or when using Facebook Stories.

Here's how to use the MacPhisto filter: In the Facebook app, begin to post a new photo or Story. Make sure the camera is pointing at your face, selfie-style. Before taking the photo, click the effects icon in the lower left corner and then swipe through the available effects until you find the MacPhisto icon. Tap that and bam! -- you're ready to do some legit "Acrobat" karaoke. Here's a visual that might help find the filter:

This is official, by the way; when you tap the MacPhisto icon, a small "By U2" message appears briefly.

As of this typing, the MacPhisto filter is available in Facebook on iOS. We haven't been able to check on Android devices yet. It also doesn't seem to be available yet anywhere inside Instagram, but that could change since Facebook owns Instagram.
