BitStrips: Here to Stay?

Screen Shot 2013-10-31 at 16.50.17You’re no doubt aware of this latest craze to sweep Facebook, however users have very mixed feelings towards it. I am, of course, talking about BitStrips and the world seems to have gone mad for them!

To give you a bit of a catch up, BitStrips are personalised comic strips whereby users can create an avatar of themselves and/or their friends and compose a still image to tell a story.

Some are using the BitStrips as milestones or to highlight a special event, however others are using them regularly as status updates.

It’s understandable that some are finding the BitStrips annoying: my own newsfeed is inundated with them! Admittedly, at first I found them quite a fun way to communicate and I did enjoy reading them.

However, if like me you find yourself sighing every time you come across one, fear not! They can be hidden from view by simply using the drop down arrow at the top-right hand corner of the BitStrip. Simply select “Hide all from BitStrips” and you shan’t be faced with the comics any longer.

Alternatively, if you’re keen to get amongst the latest fad, I’ve found this useful link on Mashable – it guides you through set up of your very own avatar and explains how to publish your very own BitStrip comic.

Whichever side of the fence you sit on, in your opinion are BitStrips here to stay?
