Avatar, Gravatar, Shmavatar???

This might interest some of you internet savy peeps. We all heard of Avatars… well if you haven’t that’s OK too. Avatars are usually the pictures that represent you on forums and blogs next to your posts or comments… as shown on the snap shot below of some engadget comment-ers… However if you ever wanted to change your avatar and you frequent many, many sites… you used to have to go to all those sites to change them manually…


…well there is a new concept in town and it is called Gravatars (read: Globaly Recognized Avatar)… check out the site en.gravatar.com… it basically links your avitars to however many email addresses you use… now when you go to choose your avatar in account setup of various websites, you can choose your gravitar… If you want to change you just go to your one gravatar account… I think this could be a very refreshing concept if more sites give you the option to use a gravatar
