Gravatars Come to EzineArticles!

Do you have yours?

Have you visited the Comments section on any of our more highly commented-upon blog posts recently? If not, please do it now. We’ll wait…

Optional Musical Interlude

Welcome back! Did you notice anything different? If you’re observant, you probably saw that many of the comments now have a little face next to them. These are called “gravatars” and they’re the latest edition to the EzineArticles blog.

A gravatar, or globally recognized avatar, is simply an image that follows you from site to site appearing beside your name when you do things. In essence, its a portable avatar.*

How do I get a gravatar?

  • Signing up for a gravatar.com account is FREE and FAST
  • All that’s required is your email address
  • Once you’ve signed up you can upload your avatar image immediately
  • Soon after you’ll start seeing it on gravatar-enabled sites – like EzineArticles.com
  • Simply go to http://en.gravatar.com/site/signup/ to sign up!

What are the benefits of a gravatar over an avatar?

  • Ease – You only have to create your gravatar once to have it appear on any gravatar-enabled site
  • Convenience – Updating your gravatar image updates your gravatar on every blog and forum using it
  • Consistency – Your image appears the same across all gravatar-enabled sites
  • Credibility – You have one unified “brand” representing your online presence

Gravatars fall in to that wonderful little “No-Brainer” category reserved for things that are FREE, EASY, FAST and packed with benefits. So why wait? Take a few minutes now to create yours, then leave a comment so we can all see your creation!

* Official Definition: A gravatar is an icon, or representation, of a user in a shared virtual reality, such as a forum, chat, website, or any other form of online community in which the user(s) wish to have something to distinguish themselves from other users.

Thanks! Already wondered from where the pictures come and how to do that. It’s really good for branding and recognition if the comment also shows an image of the person who has commented.

Thank you for the instruction. I have been wondering since yesterday how to get the photo of the person to be on the comment.

It is good to have this feature as we can know each other who commented on this fabulous blog.

Yep, I’ve been using Gravatar for ages now. It’s good to get an image of yourself branded if you are trying to create a brand name for yourself. It’s something people instantly recognize before they do your name.

I’ve been using this since November (08), and just logged in, prompted by your email. I did not realize that you can use more than one email address and gravatar! And that is very cool! When posting out there on the Internet, this incredible service makes things much easier. As for creating “brand,” this cannot be beat.

Have a super day!

All,

Feel free to keep trying and posting on this thread until your Gravatar shows up.

You won’t see my gravatar when I do a blog comment because myself and our team have hard-coded avatars so that you know when we’re responding on behalf of EzineArticles vs. non-EzineArticles staff. Hope that makes sense.

Yahoo EzineArticles! I know that when I am teaching article marketing, I am always emphasizing how important it is to make “useful” comments that stand out on other people’s articles. Using a gravatar helps tremendously because so many other commenters do not use them – you will be noticed. Plus – seeing a face next to the comment helps instill trust in the commenter. I know I prefer to know who I am listening to!

Jan, It’s possible you have an account but did not assign a photo to that email yet. When you log in with your email address, you should be able to go to “manage” and see if you have any photos uploaded. If you do not, you go to “add an image” and you can upload an image, crop it and then assign it to your email address. You can also add multiple email addresses with different photos each.

Hi, I think this branding is great! I haven’t used it to it’s fullest, but I sure do tire going to “my pictures” and uploading a pic (avatar) for each site or forum.

There is usually a 5-15 minute delay for their servers to update. The same thing will happen if you change your photo. :)

Thanks Lisa – and Chris, I guess. My gravatar popped up all on its own! I see from other entries that it may take a few moments. It’s great to see everyone – and to be seen. I think ;-( Not a great fan of my own photos – bit camera shy!

Thanks Marc,

I really appreciate this great information. But I’m having some difficulty in changing my avatar. I’ve chosen the one I want and confirmed it, and then when I refresh the page, the old one still shows up. Any suggestions on what I need to do to change that?

Thanks,

Andrea

Andrea,

Simply wait. I believe it takes some time for all the servers, etc. to get caught up with the change. If, after a day, it’s still not updated, contact Gravatar Support.
