Avatar images have a characteristic personal icon bind to it, known as “picons” in Facebook

Facebook is currently busy integrating an all-new update, that lets you animate yourself. Facebook avatars are now similar to that of Bitmoji. The profile picture that you use is basically a graphical representation of you. However, now you can make a 3D version of these avatars instead of the normal 2D versions present before. Avatar images have a characteristic personal icon bind to it, known as “picons“. But this term has become very uncommon nowadays. This the second update since launching the Messenger Rooms for all platforms.

Avatars are a way to represent characters. This is not the first time that avatars are used in social media platforms. Previously Snapchat has used this from long before. However, the very first introduction of the word goes back to a computer video game. The RPG game, PLATO, used the term Avatar for the first time in order to give the user a choice to select characters.
