Why can’t I get Avatar from Facebook? For some users, new cartoon characters do not function.
New customized cartoon characters called Avatars have been released by FACEBOOK, but not everyone has an easy time making them.
For certain people, the fun feature doesn’t work, with a few complaining on social media that they cannot build a Facebook Avatar at all.
But the easy problem can easily be fixed. Some of the users are not aware of where the feature to create their avatar is located. That seems to be the main problem.
We are going to work you through the various steps to take to get your avatar created by you and how to use them.
But first, we will go through the possible questions you might have and how to answer them.
Why am I unable to get Avatars?
Facebook users can reach the three horizontal lines on the upper right side of the Facebook app to access Avatars.
Under the “see more” caret, the option to build one appears.
Some users have posted on Reddit, however, that they are unable to see the new functionality.
In order to have this problem out of the way, ensure that you have the latest Facebook application installed on your phone.
Older and outdated apps will definitely not have this new feature.
To look as you want, you can design the cartoon characters and share them in Facebook comments and on messenger while chatting with friends.
Head to the Google Play store on Android and pick the menu. To update, tap on my apps and games and scroll down to Facebook.
You can go to the App Store on an iPhone and go to your Apple account by clicking the icon in the upper right corner. Scroll down to Facebook, then hit Refresh.
Some users have mentioned finding a workaround in Messenger, if that does not give you access to Avatars.
“User Briaugar said on Reddit: “Open your last message and in the comment bar, click on the smiley face.
Once the stickers are opened, click on what looks like the Angry Bird on the bottom left.
The maker of Avatar will open it.
Apparently, by going to the stickers and selecting the purple face, you can also access Avatars, which should allow you to customize your character.
Users can also go to the bookmarks under “see more” and search for Avatars.
Finally, it is likely that Avatars have actually not yet been rolled out to your account, so sit tight and be patient to arrive with the update.
Facebook users can hit the three horizontal lines at the top right of the Facebook app to access Avatars.
