Facebook introduces new avatar features: Gone are the days when facebook users will have to be experiencing their feelings only via Facebook’s generic sad, happy, frustrated, or thumbs-up emojis.
This week after releasing it last year in other nations, Facebook rolled out its Avatar feature to users in the US.
The feature allows Facebook users to create a cartoon avatar of themselves, similar to Snapchat’s Bitmoji. In comments, Facebook stories, and messenger, they may use the avatar.
“So many of our interactions are taking place online these days, which is why being able to express yourself directly on Facebook is more important than ever,” Fidji Simo, the head of the Facebook app, said in a tweet.
“With so many feelings and expressions to choose from, avatars allow you to react and connect more authentically in the app with family and friends,” Simo added.
Follow the steps below to build your own Facebook avatar if you can’t wait to try out the new feature. In the Facebook app on iOS, these screenshots are taken, but in the Android version, the steps are identical.
Phase 1: On your iOS or Android phone, open up the Facebook app. In the bottom-right corner of your screen, press the three horizontal lines.
Step 2: Scroll down to See More and tap.
Step 3: Just select “Avatars.”
Step 4: Tap ‘Next’ and then Get Started.’
Step 5: Pick a skin tone that matches your best and then tap “Next.”
Step 6: Now go through and hairstyle part, hair color, face shape, eye shape and color, makeup, eyebrows, nose shape, facial hair, body shape, dress, etc and tailor your avatar to your liking. If you want to get down to the extreme specifics, there’s even a section for facial lines and complexion.
Tap on the mirror icon at the top right of the screen to open your phone’s front-facing camera if you need a reminder of what you really look like.
Phase 7: Press the checkmark in the upper right corner of your screen when you have finished customizing your avatar and are pleased with how it looks.
Step 8: Tap “Next” once the screen finishes loading.
Step nine: Tap on “Done.”
Yay!-Yay! You can tap on the arrow sign in the upper right to share it with your Facebook feed or set it as a temporary profile image now that you have finished creating your avatar.
Tap on the sticker icon (the smiling square below the arrow) to see the various Avatar stickers, or click on the pencil icon if you would like to make any changes to your Avatar.
Simply tap the smiley face next to the gif icon and then tap the avatar icon at the bottom of the screen (fourth from the left) to use the avatar when making comments.
