Avatars for Facebook are the social network’s take on Bitmojis. Avatars are the Facebook answer to Bitmoji. Facebook now allows you to create custom-made cartoon characters called Avatars.
With so many emotions and self-expression to choose from, avatars allow you to react and engage more truly with family and friends for more fun online using the app
The feature is currently available in the US, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Canada, India, and lately across sub-Saharan Africa.
With Facebook Avatars, you can create an avatar for your Facebook profile pictures that enables you to modify your image as a cartoon-style character and share on your timeline.
You can customize your avatar with a variety of hairstyles, faces, and outfits. It allows people to create a new persona to share across social media in a more personal, light-hearted way.
Furthermore, Avatars enable you to share a series of emotions and expressions via a digital persona that’s uniquely representative of you.
Or, you could embrace the madness of 2020 and create an avatar that’s so different from what you look like in the real world.
