    Gravatar is a portmanteau for Globally Recognized Avatar and is a user image associated with an email address. The Gravatar is then used whenever that email address is used for comments or post authorship on websites which have Gravatar enabled.

    Gravatar is owned by Automattic, the company that runs WordPress blogs, both .com, and self-hosted blogs use Gravatars for user avatars unless otherwise disabled by the website owner.

    If a user leaves a comment and is a guest or doesn’t have a Gravatar, a default icon will be used instead – website owners can choose from a default user icon, the Gravatar logo, or from several randomly-generated icons: Identicon, Retro, MonsterID, or Wavatars.
