Facebook has launched an Avatar Creator feature that allows users to create a digital persona that represents them.
“We’ve been rolling out Avatars in several countries around the world, and are excited to launch in Pakistan. With so much of our lives taking place online right now, we’re giving people a way to convey their authentic identity when expressing themselves on Facebook,” said the social media giant.
The Avatar Creator will enable users to share a range of emotions and expressions in a fun and personalised way via stickers in comments, Messenger, and stories.
How to create your avatar:
The Avatar creator has options of adding facial features, hair, and outfits to your digital persona so you could be as creative as you like.
This creator can be accessed from Bookmarks in your FB app, as well as from the comment composer. It’s also easy to access the avatar creator from someone else’s avatar shared across Facebook.
To create your avatar, use your mobile device and go to the Facebook or Messenger comment composer, click on the “smiley” button, and then the sticker tab.
Start by clicking on the “Create Your Avatar” tab Or find the avatar creator in the Bookmarks section in your Facebook app.
At present, the avatar creation from Messenger is currently only available on Android but will be rolled on iOS soon.
