  • For creation, users can go to the comment composer and click on the Smiley icon present there. Users will then have to go to the sticker tab and select Create Your Avatar option. This option can also be found in the avatar creator present in the Bookmarks section which is there in the Facebook app.
  • Avatar can be created there by choosing skin tone and hair. 
  • Once an avatar is ready, it can be found in the new Holi stickers that are present in the sticker library.
