Facebook Avatar is now available in Africa after been launched in the USA, Canada, Europe, and India. Before now, there has been an anticipation of this feature coming to Africa based on the fact that some very helpful features like Facebook Dating and Facebook Marketplace haven’t been launched in Africa.
In my earlier articles on these avatars, I made it clear that with time, more countries will get it. Asides it being fun to use, I will say it has a lot of benefits and it is not unnecessary as being referred to by some.
