Bitstrips is a way of creating a virtual reality YOU.  Yes, like an avatar.  And I've recently decided I'm going to live vicariously through my Bitstrip.  She's going to be adventurous and do all the fun things I want to do!  Because through Bitstrips you can place yourself, and your friends, in all kinds of imaginable scenarios.  These comics have been quickly replacing boring, run-of-the-mill status updates on Facebook.  It's more fun this way!

Step 3: When you're happy with your changes click save!

Step 4:  Choose a comic strip starring you, one with your friends, or even a greeting card!

Step 5:  Search for a theme for your cartoon starring you, or use some of the suggested categories include Good, Bad, and Holiday.
