Facebook has launched the Avatar feature. The feature lets you customize a virtual lookalike of yourself and use it in comments, stories, and Messenger as a sticker. AIN.UA tells you how to create your avatar.

How to create a Facebook Avatar

  • Open the Facebook application on your smartphone and tap the menu (three horizontal lines at the bottom of the screen).
  • Scroll down and tap “See More.”
  • Tap on “Avatars.”
  • Create a character: choose your skin tone, face and eye shape, hairstyle, clothes, and other details.
  • Tap the checkbox and save your avatar.

Facebook is considering extending the capabilities of Avatars to be used as a profile or group pictures.
