Let Bitmoji into your life. Now is the time to learn a new language of smartphone messaging with this brief introduction.
If you haven’t been following the most recent trends of mobile messaging, you might be wondering what a “Bitmoji” actually is. Well, I’m here to tell you that a Bitmoji is more than just texting cartoons, but can actually add life to your messages. As useful as a Bitmoji can be, there are common pitfalls for first-time users. As a result, I’ll walk through the Bitmoji process and explain some ways to avoid common errors.
Initially, cartoon emojis were exciting because they expressed an emotion in a small icon. Bitmoji takes these emojis to the next level of messaging and personalization! Essentially, Bitmoji images add a new toolkit to interactive texting.
How it works:
You create a characterized version of yourself. This ranges from creating the shape of your eyebrows to creating the types of shoes that you typically wear. In the end, you create a persona that resembles you. Afterward, you can send small photos with different themed messages ranging from "I love you" to "safe travels" to "you suck" … The possibilities are endless!
