Before we start, there are three small points that I would like you all to read and keep in mind about Facebook Avatars.

  • Facebook Avatars can be created only on an Android or iOS Smartphone. The process to create a FB Avatar is precisely similar on both platforms.
  • Facebook Avatars cannot be created on a computer. However, you can use the FB Avatar you created on the mobile device.
  • These FB Avatars can also be used in Facebook stories, Messenger and of course, comments.
  • You can edit your FB Avatar as many times as you like and the entire creation process is free of cost.
  • FB Avatars are way too much Fun – Sorry for keeping you waiting – Let’s run through the steps.

One Liner Step: Tap on the Hamburger menu on the top right and then Locate Avatars in the list of options.

Important: If you don’t have the Avatars option in your Facebook settings then you need to update your Facebook app and if it is updated then probably this feature is not rolled out in your region yet. Unfortunately, you will have to wait till your device receives the update.
