    In many cases, an avatar is very simple, just a photo of the member. I've done that myself. Others who represent a business use the business logo. Recently, however, a new member chose an avatar that pictures an apparently Asian woman who appears to be smoking a cigarette. That got me wondering, how do some members choose their avatar? Of course, there are others who did the same thing I did, others who use a business logo, so that's nothing special. But if you chose an avatar for a special reason, why did you choose it?

    Not much of a backstory with this avatar... I was simply browsing through one of those specialised avatar websites and trying to find something not too geeky or silly... so this suited me! I think it's cool.

    It's a photo of myself with a filter applied over it to make me look a bit more handsome. :p

    The reason behind avatar is to promote brand image in the form of avatar. Because if you see same image on multiple places, and that image will save in your mind, and this thing in your mind may be generate curiosity to know about brand or avatar image.
