In 2013, Google was awarded a patent for an app allowing users to create a comic strip of their daily activities. The app offers a variety of different themes, allowing users to add panels, images and text. The app is yet to hit the market, however, the idea is aligned with the growing trend of social media becoming a lot more visual than textual. This is evident in social media platforms such as Instagram, Snapchat and Tik Tok growing in popularity, while more textual platforms such as Facebook are decreasing in popularity. This patent might make for an interesting addition to add to the visual social media platforms currently available!
