As you begin to fill out your Socialphy profile, one of the important steps is choosing an avatar. This is the image that appears on your profile, next to your user name when you comment, and on any of your posts, topics, and shouts. When you join you will be given one of Socialphy's default avatars. To change yours, visit your Account page. You can upload a photo from your computer or take one with your computer's camera. Most users choose to use a personal photo so that their friends will be able to find and follow them more easily.
