Best Review - Top 7 Sites for Free Avatars


f you blog or are active on social media sites, you're probably aware of what an avatar is: a small (usually square) icon that appears next to your account name. In a way, these avatars define who you are for other Web users, because they're the most visible symbol of who you are.

Some people use photos of themselves for their avatars, but many want to be more creative than that by posting a piece of art, a cartoon or even an artistically altered version of their photo that raises it to a new level of creativity.

There are a number of sites that offer the ability to make these creative free avatars. They range in the type of resources they offer but they will give you a great start if you're looking to upgrade your online image. Below are some really great sites.
