Facebook is one of the largest social media platforms in the world to keep us connected with our friends, colleagues and kith and kin. Recently Facebook has rolled out major features to make our chatting experience better and safer, such as shortcuts bar, off-Facebook activity, dark mode, Messenger Kids and so on.
The Avatar feature is one of them which allows users to create their own cartoon-like avatars to share it with your friends. The cartoon version of yourself gives you a better way to express yourself on Facebook.
The avatar feature also has lots of in-built customisation options such as a variety of hairstyles, faces, colours, complexions, lines, eye shapes, eyebrows, Bindi, eyewear, nose, nose rings, mouth, facial hair, body shape, outfits, headwear, earrings and the like.
