You’ve seen them everywhere. The Facebook avatar is taking over your newsfeed. And as weird as some of them might be, you’ll probably give in and make one. (Lots of you already did and shared them with us!)

But where do you start if you want to make your own Facebook avatar? We’re here to help. Follow the few steps below and you’ll be up and running with your adorable little Facebook avatar in no time! Note: You can’t create your Facebook avatar from the desktop version of Facebook. It has to be on a mobile device. But you can use it later on your desktop after it’s created.

While this seems like a lot of steps, it’s really not as bad as it looks. Once you get going on your own Facebook avatar, you’ll be just fine.
