If you've been on Facebook recently, you've probably noticed the animated phenomenon known as Bitstrips on your Timeline.

The comic strip app, which reached the No. 1 spot in the iPhone App Store this week, has taken Facebook by storm -- and not everyone is pleased about it.

As a matter of fact, Savjona, you can make it stop, at least on your Facebook timeline, by following these three simple steps:

1) Click on the Facebook Account Settings icon, and click the "Blocking" option on the left side of your screen.

2) Now scroll down to the "Block Apps" option at the bottom.

3) Type in "Bitstrips," and enjoy a cartoon-free Timeline again.
