Facebook Avatar is Bitmoji. Facebook rolled out Avatars, its take on Bitmoji, in the U.S. this week. An Avatar (also known as a profile picture or userpic) is a graphical representation of a user or the user’s alter ego or character.

It may take either a two-dimensional form as an icon in Internet forums and other online communities or a three-dimensional structure, as in games or virtual worlds. Avatar images have referred to as “picons” (personal icons) in the past, the usage of this term is uncommon now.

Avatar Origins

The word avatar originates in Hinduism, where it stands for the “descent” of a deity in a terrestrial form (deities in Hinduism are popularly thought to be formless and capable of manifesting themselves in any form). The earliest use of the word avatar in a computer game was the 1979 PLATO role-playing game Avatar.

An avatar can also refer to a text construct found on early systems such as MUDs. The term “avatar” can refer to the personality connected with the screen name, or handle, of an Internet user. The appearance of social media structures, which includes FB, where users aren’t generally nameless, brought about sizable utilization of profile snapshots presenting a picture of oneself on the one’s platforms, now and then with filters.
