Custom Facebook user avatars arrive in the United States, joining Europe, Canada, and other regions, for sprucing up comments…
Facebook has finally brought its avatars to the US, almost a year after it released the feature Australia. (It expanded to other countries, including many in Europe and even to Canada.) As one might imagine, the Facebook Avatars are digital animations based on imitating real people.
Custom Facebook User Avatars Debut in the United States
To use Facebook avatars simply open the flagship or Messenger app and locate the new “Make Your Avatar” that resides in the stickers menu within the comments composer. There are options to choose clothing, hair type, and skin tone. However, these aren’t for use with profile pictures. Instead, they’re restricted to comments, chat, as well as Facebook Gaming profiles.
Although, Facebook might make its avatars a bit more widely available in the future. But, it at least shows the company’s getting a little more serious about offering what its rivals already do, like Snap and Apple. Those organizations released their own custom emojis approximately two years ago, in 2018. Of course, it’s ultimately up to Facebook’s users to actually create their own custom avatars and use them regularly. Otherwise, the social network might abandon the tool due to low usage.
