• Memojis.How to make your personalized emojis on iPhone or Android

The latest update of the Facebook application for Android has incorporated an interesting novelty: Facebook Avatar, the possibility of creating personalized stickers with our face to use on the social network and in its messaging app, Messenger. We explain how to make personalized emojis on Facebook with this new tool.

To create a Facebook Avatar the first thing is to check that the application is updated. For this you have to go to Google Play and search the store for the app itself. When it appears it will offer the option to open it (in that case it is updated) or to install the latest version. Once this is done we can start.

While the creation process is straightforward, finding the option is not that easy. Thus, it will be necessary to go to any state (it may be ours) and press 'Comment' - it will not be necessary to leave messages. When doing so, the option to enter a gif will appear on the keyboard and, next to it, a face, which activates the emojis: you have to select it.

The next step -possibly the least intuitive- is to go to an icon of color between violet and pink, with a mouth (without eyes) and a certain form of comic speech bubble. It is located on the left, next to an icon with four circles placed in a square and it is the one that hides the option to create a Facebook avatar.

After pressing the message 'Create your avatar' , the Facebook emoji editor will finally appear , where you will have to choose elements such as skin tone, face shape, eyes, eyebrows or glasses, among others. Those who have ever created a character for a video game will have no problem (the truth is that those who have not done so should not find challenges at this point). Despite its simplicity, it has multiple customization options.

Once finished, it will be possible to use these stickers on Facebook and Messenger. The avatar can be edited at any time and the reactions are predefined, but they are quite varied.

At the moment it is not known when the personalized emojis will arrive on WhatsApp for those who do not have an iPhone. Although Facebook also owns the messaging application (and Instagram, by the way) and its plans are to unify all these apps, it is a medium-term strategy, so it is more likely that a publisher of its own will end up in WhatsApp that you can use the Facebook emoji outside the social network.
