If so, what do you think.

Or if you've seen them, what do you think.

I've personally got mixed feelings. They are amusing, but could easily become irritating.

Sounds like an upgraded smilie function. I stopped using facebook a while back (as you may have guessed ).


I do remember the bloody 'Like' function did my head in.

I prefer conversation to someone sticking their thumb up

This new feature would send me ballistic they must spend more time altering features than just posting a few words.

Amusing, for about 10 seconds. Like DrawSomething.

Me and my boyfriend love winding each other up with it.

Funny app imo.

Ah, is that what it is? I've only seen it once, and my only thought was, 'wow, that cartoon looks just like David'.

The same ones seem to be popping up all the time now, just with different people. I don't really see the appeal but they seem to be spreading.

Personally i think it's funny if the right people use it. If people use it to say what is going on in their life then i couldn't really give a damn, but if you are anything like my brother then it can be very funny. He just does really stupid things.

I knew as soon as i seen it though that people were going to get annoyed by it

Different but quickly becoming annoying, my whole feed is littered with them.

The novelty has worn off pretty quickly.

I find them mildly amusing but only because the characters are not as fat or ugly as the people they apparently represent.

I haven't used it, I didn't know you could block it and will do so later.

Some of them have been creative and very witty. One or two have been tedious.

Blocking the app isn't totally effective, as the users often upload their hilarious caricatures as as a photo.

They started popping up on my newsfeed a couple of weeks ago and now they're all over it. I suppose it's better than seeing stupid videos taking over my timeline but I still find them an annoyance.

Although, like Bibidy, I find it funny when people make make themselves appear far more attractive/skinnier/muscular than they really are!

I suppose you could always hide future updates from those who are the worst culprits.

Good, I shall do that as they are annoying. The first couple that appeared were amusing but not now.

Judging by my newsfeed, I'm the only one who hasn't used them yet! One or two are quite amusing, but people are just making up any old cr@p now so that they can make a cartoon of themselves. I did block bit strips from my newsfeed, but somehow the odd one still gets through.
