Understanding the point of gravatars
Posted January 28, 2009on:
I’m a social guy..I promise. I created a twitter account ages ago and haven’t spent much time using it. The same story goes for MySpace and Facebook. To my surprise, I logged into my Twitter account today and noticed I had no avatar! What!?!? Didn’t I add my avatar when I created the account? I guess not. Funny thing is, I just went through this same problem with my Facebook account a few weeks ago. I quickly open my browser and feverishly type “Optimus Prime” and click “images”…ahhh…he we go. Now, why am I doing this every time? I seem to pick the same picture of Optimus Prime to use for my avatar. I think now I am starting to realize “why” gravatars are useful.
