Your avatar is a small picture that appears next to your content, comments, and status updates to let community members quickly recognize you with a simple visual cue. When you upload your first profile photo you will also be asked if you would like to use the same picture as you avatar. If you did not choose to use the same profile photo, follow the steps below to add a new image for your avatar.
