    "The more people out there using this the better. Finally something to replace those lame emojis with something more unique and interesting. You can make your own library of emojis all featuring you. I love that I can express myself as myself and not some yellow smiley face."


An avatar, in digital terms, is a graphical version or representation of the user. In short, an avatar is a user’s character. An avatar is mostly used as an icon or photo in online forums, communities, or in some cases, video games.


Did you know that the term avatar originated from the religion and dharma of Hinduism? Avatar stands for the descent of a deity onto the earth, thereby manifesting themselves into terrestrial forms. The term was first used in an application called Avatar, which is a role-playing game for the PLATO operating system, released in 1979. Despite that, it’s first usage as an on-screen representation of the user was way back in 1985 in another computer game named Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar, wherein creator Richard Garriott desired the player’s character be the game version of themselves.

Although the term was initially used for a player’s in-game character, it soon became used exclusively within online forums and chat applications as a visual representation of the users in place of photos of their real faces. Presently, avatars are more often than not a necessity when joining an online group, be it a group chat or an online forum. Additionally, supporting avatar applications like Bitmoji have increased in population throughout the years and have become available for use in various chat applications, further reinforcing the fact that social avatars are here to stay.

    "I think FaceQ is a cute app. It allows you to create custom avatars, with some restrictions. For example, you can not change the color of the background or clothing. You also are unable to select the placement of certain elements in the avatar. Another issue I have with FaceQ is only light skin tones are represented in this app. "

    "Avatar Maker is a simple and easy way to make your own character representation. It's fun to make something unique to yourself, something that shows off what you want people to see instead of using stock pictures. It doesn't take long to make an avatar, but you can spend hours going through and making and changing little aspects."
