This is the weird Chinese app that's taking over your Facebook feed

This is the weird Chinese app that's taking over your Facebook feed

Every few days, you'll see a new app, game, story or video sweep through Facebook. It seems like everywhere you look, there it is.

The latest one is from an iPhone app called MyIdol. It scans your face and lets you create a customizable avatar. You can tweak your hair, facial markings, clothes, shoes and more.

Once you have your avatar, you can choose from a bunch of poses and props to create fun pictures and animated gifs.

Here are some photos I made with it. It would have worked better if I picked a photo where I wasn't smiling, but I'm always smiling.
