Facebook is - finally- launching a new feature: Avatars, a playful way for users to represent themselves in Messenger chats and News Feed comments. This feature lets you customize a virtual lookalike of yourself for use as stickers in chat and comments.

Avatars is currently only available to users in Australia, but all Facebook users will be able to create them sometime at the end of 2019 or early 2020. We would love to be able to create our avatar now!
