Facebook trends come and go like mayflies. One of the latest to hit the cyber-waves is the Bitstrips app. Whether it’s a cure for individual frustrations or a curse that won’t go away remains to be seen.
Facebook is a tonic for the youth of the planet. It is a platform where they could enjoy their uncouthness and really update their status like party animals. The fads and foibles that come to the fore on the largest social network ever seen are myriad indeed.
The newest one to enter the arena is termed Bitstrips and it is a cartoon strip application. You can create caricatures of yourself and others and post them on your Facebook home page via this terrific tool. The avatar you create can be a good source of letting loose a volley of linguistic baggage you may have been carrying since way back when you were a kid.
Whatever the case, the Bitstrips application has become extremely popular on Facebook. It is suddenly the “in” thing that everyone’s talking about. While the app has been around for quite some time, it took to the sky only recently after coming to the Apple App Store and Google Play. The site on the Internet has in excess of 11 million users. In other words it is not something to be ignored, at least for now that is.
The capacity to put everything you experience into the shape of a cartoon strip carries all sorts of connotations. You can annoy or irritate any one of your friends (or enemies) you wish to at the drop of a hat. All you need to do is cast them negatively in a cartoon scenario. It’s that simple. So while it may be a friend to the positive souls among us, it can act like a fiend in the hands of negative characters.
