What's with all those cartoons on Facebook?

Bitstrips suddenly all the rage on social media

A new trend is taking over Facebook feeds all over the world.

Bitstrips, an app for smartphones, allows users to create custom cartoon avatars which they can then post to their social media pages.

According to its website, Bitstrips is the world's biggest comic creating community.

Though the International Business Times reports the program has only been available for a few months, there are already 11 million unique users who have saved 55 million of the comics. More than three billion people are estimated to have seen at least one of the quick creations.
