Bitstrips App – Enjoy Sharing Comics starring YOU !

Off late, I’m sure you have noticed how your Facebook homepage has turned out into looking like the Comics section of your Sunday newspaper. All thanks to the Bitstrips app, a Facebook user can create his or her cartoon avatar, and showcase various incidents via pre-installed “scenes”. Now what’s the fun in that? Nothing! They are just the plain old simple comic strips with cartoon avatars of you and your friends in (mostly) a humorous situation. What you do with it once it’s created? You share the Bitstrips app on your Facebook Timeline, and have a good laugh about it with your friends.

Let’s take this image as an example. The Facebook Timeline of Christine (the name has been changed, obviously) shows a Bitstrips image where she is dissatisfied with her boss’s attitude as he refuses to acknowledge her hard work.
