Why should you use a cartoon avatar?

Using a cartoon avatar makes you stand out, makes your interactions more memorable. We think most people could recognize an avatar which they’ve seen before more easily than a nickname, suggesting they are even more important than you online name.

You represent yourself with an avatar which can tell a lot about. A poorly chosen avatar might give off the wrong first impression, which is important as we know.

What kind of avatars should you avoid?

An avatar is a reflection of ourselves. In the online world we start with a clean slate and choose how we behave and interact with the others. An avatar is a big part of the persona you portray. It can be a character of your favorite anime, or a movie, an actor, a character from a game, or a book, an abstract shape, or you can chose not to have one.Using the image of a character/thing the way you found it on the net as an avatar is better than nothing, but it’s likely that you chose a popular picture of the character favored by the search engine, this way you end up with the exact same avatar as other people who had this idea.We suggest taking an extra step and customize your avatar so its unique. The best way would be getting custom cartoon avatar which was made from the ground up, making it truly one of a kind. Going the extra mile like this shows others at the first glance that you give a damn.
There are a lot of possibilities, styles available as far as avatars go, and they all tell a different story about their owner. The avatars are an indication of the nature/personality of the person behind it. Choosing the wrong one can have a negative impact on how you are trying to represent yourself. For example avatars are usually small in size, and many people forget about this. Try getting one that works in smaller sizes as well as many of the avatars we come across are incomprehensible, just a smudge of random colors at a smaller scale, making the owner seem sloppy, and someone who doesn't really care.


Since an avatar is the digital representation of yourself they are everywhere, and they are present at every online interaction. The setting of these interactions however can be vastly different. You might not want to use your Pikachu profile picture which is perfectly fine in most of the cases, in a professional/work related environment.
If you are present in several communities, with different topics, and general tone you might want to change your avatar to fit the current setting, and not stand out in a negative way.
So to answer the main question in short, a cartoon avatar is a well rounded and versatile choice which can be used in many different circumstances, for social media such as facebook, instagram or it can be used for gaming, or youtube as well.
