Smirk is a simple and small service which allows you to create video icons of yourself directly from your webcam. You can then save those icons in your Smirk profile and share them with your friends.
Just head over to their site and you can immediately create your own video avatar. It just takes a few seconds of recording to create one. You can record a video depending on a mood caption available. You don’t have to worry about making mistakes when creating your video icon. You can replace a previously created icon with a new recording. However, I cannot seem to find a way to delete the icons that I’ve created. It seems that the only way to get rid of my silly face on Smirk was to replace the previously created icon with a blank recording. So, if you want your face removed from the service, just rerecord the video with your cam facing the wall.
Sharing is very easy, an embed code and a URL of your video icon will be available to you. You can also get an animated GIF version of your video icon for use as an avatar in forums and other services which allows animated GIFs.
Smirk is a different way of expressing yourself on the web. If you want to have some fun with your online avatar, better check it out.
