We all know that Facebook is always innovating. In this case, following the success of Snapchat’s Bitmoji and Apple’s Memoji, it has created its personalized stickers. The Facebook Avatar is a set of 47 ‘stickers’ with which you can create an emoticon of your face by choosing skin color, hair color, the shape of the face, nose, and lips, and even clothing.
This feature allows you to create a digital character that offers new forms of expression for users: they represent all kinds of feelings and reactions: applause, tears, laughter, gratitude, approval.
Moreover, unlike classic emojis or stickers, Avatars allow those who create them to communicate with family and friends in a creative and fun way both in comments and in the profile picture, stories posts, as well as being available in Messenger chats and the news section.
How To Make A Facebook Avatar: Step By Step
- Step 1: to create your avatar on Facebook, the first thing you must do is go to a post, whatever it is, and go to the replies or comments section.
- Step 2: once there, select the smiley face icon next to the ‘GIF’ icon. The page will give you the option to create your own Emoji.
- Step 3: You will start by choosing the skin color, then the hairstyle, the shape of the face and eyes, shape and color of the eyebrows, nose, and lips, mustache, complexion, and accessories such as clothes, glasses, and hats. In addition, Facebook has implemented a ‘mirror function’ so that, by activating the camera of your cell phone, you can see yourself live to have a reference when creating the avatar.
- Step 4: when you are done, you just must click on the ‘viewed’ symbol, and you are ready to go.
From now on, you will be able to access your stickers in the emoji section, and, whenever you want, you will be able to edit your Avatar on Facebook.
