Globally Recognized Avatar
Your Gravatar is an image that follows you from site to site appearing beside your name when you do things like comment or post on a blog. Avatars help identify your posts on blogs and web forums, so why not on any site?
What this means for the Author
You can brand your name, your book, link to your site – all the time you are commenting and building connections. It is done seamlessly and silently.
