Avatars on FB are published by Facebook – how to get yours  – Today, the Bitmoji-Esque cartoon lookalikes that users can make of themselves, Facebook rolled out its Avatars to US users. That means that millions of users can now create their doppelganger for use in comments and messaging. The customization options are pretty comprehensive, so you can get pretty close if you want to create a little mini version of yourself.

Doing this makes Facebook a little closer to Snapchat and Apple’s Memoji, which has a close partnership with Bitmoji. I wonder if these custom Avatars will play a role in the evolving social space of Facebook’s VR, Horizon.

Would you like to begin creating your Avatar? Here’s how they do it.

To access the Avatar construct, go anywhere on FB to Messenger or the comment box. Next to the text box, press the sticker button. If the option is rolled out to you, you can see the “Make Your Avatar” option immediately. Select this option and get started. All of our photos will be from the Facebook app for the purposes of the demonstration.

There is no gender choice for instance, and I think this is pretty refreshing. Instead, beginning with the skin tone, you go straight into customizing your face. With regards to hairstyle and color, eye shape, nose shape, complexion, and even glasses, there is a good range of choices.

When I realized the app had glasses very close to my own with the same tortoiseshell color, you should have seen my face. Unfortunately, the make-up choices are a little small, but hopefully, they will be extended over time, although you can give yourself a wacky lipstick shade and some bomb lashes.

Also, if you’ve forgotten what your face looks like for some reason, you can pick the little mirror option in the top-right corner and your front-facing camera will open. That way, when you create your doppelganger, you can have your own face and body to compare. I’m still not sure I got my nose and eye shape right even with that, but nobody’s ever the best judge of themselves.

Fidji Simo of Facebook, when she unveiled her own Avatar, suggested that new choices for customization, including costumes, are on the way. I hope that’s real because if there is one thing in this little character designer that is defective, it’s the outfits. We seriously have three different outfits for plaid shirts, but the only choice for simple t-shirts requires me to wear skinny jeans and hideous Converse? Where are the short shorts for me? Are heels chunky? The tops of tanks? Hats from cowboys? Boots for cowboys? In any given thrift shop, I might stick my arm out and come back with a trendier haul than this.

If you have finished Avatar, you can change it at a later date. Go to the Facebook app menu to do so, the one with the three horizontal lines, and find the purple Avatar option. Then, you can edit to the content of your heart.

And if you think it doesn’t look like you when its face is blank, click the option on the top right of the sticker and you’ll see what it’s going to look like when it’s in the different poses of the sticker. I wasn’t really sure that mine looked like me until I saw it in a pose.
