when did avatars become pfps
and does wondering this make me old yet
@DialMforMara Probably around the time Facebook and Twitter came along and forced the term onto us all.
@Jo Facebook and Twitter don't still use avatar? I only see pfp on discord
@DialMforMara I was late to both, but even back around 2010 I remember Twitter at least calling it a profile picture.
@Jo I also remember profile picture. So is the process avatar -> profile picture -> pfp?
@DialMforMara Yeah that pretty much seems to be the sequence.
