- Choose displaying the avatar when the display area is not large enough to show the user’s full name.
- When the avatar is displayed, display the name using a tooltip.
- Do not authorize two different avatars for a sole user.
- Always frame the uploaded image on all sides where it is shown.
The avatar comes into play when it is necessary to visually identify a user, which could be in a login area in the app header, or in a chat post, or in a work group restricted to certain users, for example.
