What is a Gravatar
To answer the question of What Is A Gravatar, we’ll find out what it is, why you would want one and where to get it.
As most know what an Avatar is, I’ll give a brief explanation in case you don’t.
An Avatar can be a picture of yourself, a caricature, a cartoon or most anything of choosing to represent yourself in many areas on the Internet.
Examples are forums or groups, and maybe you choose to use one on FaceBook or Twitter in place of your own personal profile photo.
The word Gravatar is derived from the word Avatar and obviously with a “GR” in front of it.
A Gravatar is a globally recognized Avatar
The wordage and image below are from the site where you obtain your Gravatar.
Your Gravatar is an image that follows you from site to site appearing beside your name when you do things like comment or post on a blog. Avatars help identify your posts on blogs and web forums, so why not on any site?
When you obtain your own personal Gravatar from the site I’ll provide below, it will only appear where they are globally recognized.
Not all sites have the use of this feature just by you getting one.
As mentioned above from the Gravatar site itself, if you do a lot of interaction such as commenting on websites and blogs, it is quite a handy convenience.
