Why You Need to Get a Bitmoji Right This Second

The app is receiving a new flurry of activity as users flock to creating their own Bitmoji. If you don’t have one, there’s a few reasons why you need one.

What are Bitmoji?

The Bitmoji app is soaring in popularity. It makes sense. After all, Snapchat purchased Bitstrips earlier this year for a whopping $100 million dollars; this week, Snapchat announced that Bitmoji would now be usable from within the app. That’s huge news for Bitmoji fans.

So, what are they, really? A Bitmoji is an avatar that represents you. It’s an avatar of a more personalized nature than emoji. For example, you get to decide what hair, eyebrows, face shape, clothing, even facial lines, and make-up (just to name a few), that you want for your avatar. Some people prefer to make theirs as similar to themselves as possible, while other people go for an alter-ego kind of look. Either way, the choice is yours.
