Facebook avatars are Facebook's Bitmoji, which allows people to create cartoon-like emojis. Facebook avatars came to the UK and Europe in April after debuting in New Zealand and Australia earlier in the year. While millions of Americans have quickly created an avatar, others have had trouble due to technical glitches.

Why is Facebook Avatar not working?

According to the head of the Facebook App,  Fidji Simo, everyone should have access to the avatars. People should tap on the three horizontal bars in the top right of their phone screen and select "see more" to access the feature.

One poster said they could tap on it, but nothing happened, while the other users replied with their fixes. Reddit user Briaugar stated they created their avatar via Facebook Messenger instead of the Facebook app. They said: "Open your last message and click on the smiley face in the comment bar. "Once it opens 'stickers,' click on what looks like the Angry Bird on the bottom towards the left. It will open the Avatar creator." A few people stated the option worked for them, while others continued to encounter problems.
