Often abbreviated as AV, an avatar can be an image or electronic picture applied to represent one’s personal within an on line discussion. The use of the term avatar for the on-screen representation of the user was coined in 1985 by Richard Garriott for the computer game Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar.

In this game, Garriott desired the player’s character to be his earth self manifested into the virtual world. Garriott did this because he wanted the real player to be responsible for the character’s in game actions due to the ethical parables he designed into the story.

For Example, using the pc Hope community, most of the people have their own custom avatars.

The image can be an Example of user picture or the character we use on forums, talk, and internet sites.
