Now Facebook is offering something new on the block, it’s called the Facebook avatar (Avatars for Facebook). You must have come across it if not on Facebook, maybe on Snapchat, and the rest. The Facebook avatar is like the Bitmoji characters, with the feature you can create your own customized virtual lookalike. Amazing right? I know.
Facebook seeks to give its users a better way to express themselves, so that’s what brought about the avatar feature. It’s a fun way to express yourself online to your friends and family, as it enables you to share a range of emotions through a cartoonish representative of you.

The Facebook Avatars can also be used in Facebook comments and stories, and eventually, text posts with backgrounds. They can also be used in your Messenger conversations, and even be displayed on your Facebook gaming profile.
