Facebook has recently added a new feature – and it’s completely epic! Users can now create a digital twin with their Avatar feature that was released on May 13th. And if you’ve been fortunate enough to check it out already and create your very own character that looks just like you, then you’re likely to be hoping that you can use your avatar on other social media platforms too. Well, now you really can on certain platforms such as the ‘Gram, which is of course, most important.
Similar to the Bitmoji on Snapchat and Apple’s Memoji, the Avatar’s on Facebook come with a variety of stickers so you can give your mini-me some personality too. In case you’ve forgotten or have yet to use it, you’ll need to enter the Facebook app either on your Android device or on iOS. Once you’re there – you can either enter the Bookmarks section on the app in order to reach the Avatar creator, or you can reach it through the comment composer too by selecting the smile icon and then ‘Create Your Avatar’.
Once you’ve perfected and personalized your Avatar, you’ll be delighted to know that you can edit it at any time, and can also share it or even use it as your profile picture. And if you really want to get creative, you can use the stickers or even use a variety of poses and expressions for your Avatar to best represent yourself. Your Avatar can then be used in comments on Facebook, in Messenger, and even in stories! If you want to bring your Avatar to another social media app, then you’re covered too. Under the Facebook app, select the Avatars bookmark where the three lines are at the bottom right, and once you’re there, under your sticks, select the sticker that you’d like to share. Then select ‘More Options’ and you’ll be given all the platforms you could ever want to share your Avatar on!
