In the online world where we can’t be physically present, we look for another form of representation of us and the people we deal with. For MindMeister users, this is especially interesting in collaboration mode, and many of our users have suggested adding avatars for exactly that reason. We’ve listened, and so from now on you will be able to add an avatar i.e. profile picture to your account by uploading an image from your computer. Users whose accounts are connected with their Facebook, Twitter or Google+ profiles can also use pictures from those platforms. As soon as there are multiple users working on a map, their pictures will be visible where so far only names could be seen.
Your avatar also puts a face to the mind maps you save in your public map channel.
