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.
Can we please kill Bitstrips now? They are stupid and kind of creepy. Please. No more. Not like this.— Tom Ward (@Birdicus91) October 30, 2013
Bitstrips are soooooo annoying. 😡— Ash• (@ash_clay13) October 30, 2013
I don't know which is worse. These Bitstrips or giraffes. Which ever it is, can we just make it stop?— Savjona Rexho (@Savjona) October 30, 2013
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.
The giraffe infestation is another matter, however.
