create facebook avatars
A new, rather hidden, feature has been released on Facebook that allows you to create the avatar of yourself, customized as you wish. The avatar is a character drawn like a cartoon that can be created from scratch by composing various parts of the body and face and used as an emoji in chats and comments. While there are several, many applications and websites for creating custom Avatars, Facebook ones can be created directly from within the application for Android and iPhone.These Facebook avatars can therefore be used as adhesive stickers in comments to friends’ posts, so that they can express themselves in a personalized and unique way, with a face that resembles ours (or as you prefer) and also within the Facebook chat Messenger.

Facebook emoticons are pretty standard in design, in fact they are very reminiscent of Bitmoji’s personalized emojis

However, I personally think they are better the animated stickers by GBoard based on our photo.
