A Hosting Service That Provides Unique Avatars


Gravatar is short for globally recognized avatar. Avatars are icons or figures that represent a person in computer games, internet forums and now even in social media sites.

To use this service, one just needs to register an account using a specific email address and upload an avatar. Then when the user posts a comment on a blog requiring an email address, that person’s avatar via Gravatar will be shown together with the comment.

A Gravatar avatar has a square shape and is normally displayed at 80 by 80 pixels by default. Any avatar larger or smaller than the required size is scaled appropriately.

Tom Preston-Werner is the man behind Gravatar. He launched the Gravatar 2.0 version in 2007 and reported 32,000 users of the service that time.

Here’s a short video about Gravatar. Enjoy!
