avatars & emojis
IDENTIFY yourself online without risking your safety.
A good step that everyone with an online presence should take is to choose an image as their avatar. Many may think it’s not that important to have a picture, but it can actually make more difference than you realise.
A good avatar should be memorable and look like you. Having an avatar identifies you, as you. An avatar also relates to your human side.
Many people use an image, or some other representation of their personality that becomes identifiable online as them.
Using an avatar is a MUCH safer option! than a real photo of yourself.
"Creating an avatar online is a nice way to involve kids in learning digital literacy skills - they'll learn about menus and buttons, try different effects, and work out what sort of finished product they want. Some kids will choose an avatar that represents themselves, others will choose one representing the way they would like to be." The Book Chook
Most sites explain how to place your avatar on their site (usually in the profile settings).
