Gravatar – your global avatar

mystery-man-smallYou must have noticed the photos of people in their comments.

These avatars help identify your articles and comments on blogs and web forums.

Gravatar is an image that follows you from page to page next to your name. It is used by WordPress and many other blogging systems.

If you want to be easily identified on the Internet, you should use Gravatar. Ideally the same as you use on Facebook or Google+ or Google autorship.

When people see your avatar a few times, there’s a good chance they’ll remember it. And when they see him again, they won’t give it to them and finally click on him to find out more about you. Gravatar is a handy tool for building your own brand.
