Facebook has introduced new Avatars, their take on Bitmoji and Memoji. Facebook users can create their own personalised characters that can be used across the Facebook platform as stickers in comments, Stories and much more.
How do I create my Facebook Avatar?
You can create your Avatar in the Facebook app. Go to menu, then ‘See more’ and you should find ‘Avatar’. Give it a couple of days if it’s not there yet!
You can customise your Avatar by choosing your skin, hair, eye and lip colour, hair style, shape of facial features, facial hair, hat, body shape and outfit from a whole range of options.
Once you’ve created your Avatar, feel free to come back to this area to update your look at any time. Try a new outfit, sample a new lippy shade, go extreme!
Use your Avatar as a sticker when commenting on Facebook posts.
Here’s how Avatar Abby looks:
If you love sharing your Memoji stickers in WhatsApp, why not give Facebook Avatar a go!
Lots of new plans are clearly in development at Facebook right now, with Avatars being rolled out just after Facebook announces that GIPHY is joining the family.
