Some interesting info….

Unlike AOL Messenger (AIM) who say ‘buddy icons’ and MSN Messenger who use the term ‘display picture’, Yahoo Messenger refer to icons as ‘avatars’. Yahoo avatars (or Yahoo messenger icons as some people like to call them) have a 96x96 pixel dimension. Yahoo defines an avatar as ‘an image that you create to represent yourself online’. You can change the clothes, accessories and hairstyles to reflect who you are and what you look like. You can also use your yahoo avatar to express your mood’. Yahoo avatars express how you are feeling because they respond to the emotions you use. If you send a smile emoticon in Yahoo Messenger, your avatar smiles. When you send a frowning emoticon, your avatar frowns. This icon integration is really cool.

There are lots of different styles of avatar. You could have a funny avatar, anime avatar, cool avatar. There is a lot of choice so if you have trouble with decisions it could be hard. Anime avatars are used a lot in Japan. If you’re a girl and like cute things look into cute icons including doll icons on our girlie display image page.

Now this is when icons get complicated! Yahoo also talk about display images. They define these as ‘a real picture of you so that your friends can see what you look like’. So are yahoo avatars just a type of yahoo display image? Who knows! Maybe we should just all call the icons.

So remember when it comes to Yahoo a display image is a display pic of yourself whereas a yahoo avatar is a graphical representation of yourself using some kind of icon.
