Avatars and social preview images
Continuing on with our visual design improvements train, you can now upload an avatar for your blog! You don’t need one, but we’ll use this avatar for your blog’s favicon, and you’ll additionally have the choice to display it in your blog’s header. Showing your face or logo or whatever image is a great way to own your own space here in Pika. For an example, check out our Pika mascot in this blog’s header! 👆
Also, have you shared a link to one of your blog posts in the past few days? If so, you might have seen a new feature we added: dynamic social preview images. Now when you share a link to your Pika blog, the unfurl will have an image with your post or page title in it, flavored in your chosen theme of course (and avatar if you have one uploaded). This creates a nice connection between your social share and Pika blog, and helps your posts stand out in a feed.
