There are places on the internet where you have to use your picture but you do not want to use your real picture and this is when you end up using avatars. An avatar is an icon or small picture used in place of your real photo in video games, internet forums or online chat sites.
Usually online services like an online forum provide the users with dozens of ready-to-use avatars but if you want to create your own avatar, then you can use a web app called Ava Maker. This web app can be used to create avatars by picking various parts of an avatar – such as nose, eyes, hair etc.
