You can finally create your personalized emojis in Facebook


Facebook just recently launched its Avatar feature in select countries last May, and it finally arrives in the Philippines!

This feature allows Facebook users to create a cartoon avatar of themselves, which can be used as emojis in comments, Facebook stories, and messenger.

Here’s how you can start enjoying this feature:

From the Messenger app

  • Open the Messenger app on your Android or iOS device. Make sure your Messenger is already updated in its latest version via Google Play or App Store.
  • Tap on the smiley icon in your textbox. From there, you’ll see an unfamiliar smiling purple icon. Tap on it and proceed to “Next” to “Get Started ” in creating your personalized avatar.

From Facebook app

  • Go to the Facebook app on your iOS or Android phone. Tap on the three horizontal lines in the bottom-right of your screen, after your notification button.
  • Scroll down and tap “See More.” Tap on “Avatars and finally tap “Next” to then “Get Started” to make an avatar of yourself.
