Bitstrips on Facebook: What Are They?


What... the hell are they?

Well, more than 11 million people have downloaded Bitstrips since its launch in December last year.

  • It's the latest app to take for your smartphone by storm, and now it's all over your Facebook news feed, right?

  • Bitstrips allows users to turn themselves into a cartoon alter-ego, an avatar, and entertain friends by being part of a digital comic strip.

  • A new, updated version of the app was released earlier this week - with more than 1000 different cartoon templates to choose from.

With the company first releasing the Facebook app in December 2012, an iPhone version was only created at the end of September and updated, along with the release of an Android version this week.

In an excerpt from a piece in the Daily Mail online, Bitstrips CEO Jacob Blackstock told the Baltimore Sun in April: "Bitstrips is hard to categorize because it's not a game.

'"t's a new way to express yourself and interact with your friends. Instead of posting the same things as everyone else, you can create something that relates to your life."

Are you already over the latest craze? I'm not - it's rather amusing seeing people poke fun at their friends in an online comic. I am learning more 'dark' secrets about some pals than I expected...

According to syracuse.com, Bitstrips has incited a mixed response: some love creating their own cartoon, while others are are not seeing the funny side.

Have you started to embrace it?
