What Is A Gravatar?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A gravatar is a globally recognized avatar. They follow the user and display next to the users name everywhere the user posts on the web, assuming the website has enabled them. The users are distinguished by their e-mail address, whose MD5 hash is sent to the Gravatar server for the correct avatar to be returned. Gravatars are rated with the MPAA-style system, making it possible for website owners to decide what’s appropriate for the viewer to see.
