Google Granted Patent For Social Media Comics

On the last day of 2013, Google was granted a patent for “Self-creation of comic strips in social networks and other communications”, which means;

Communications to be shared on social networks and other electronic modes of communication are presented in comic strip form. The comic strips are created with a simplified user interface and are formatted to be well-suited for display on a selected social network or other electronic facility. The comic strips are displayed in an embedded form directly in the social network or other facility, without the need for a user to go to a separate site to view the comic strip.

Which sounds a bit like Bitstrips to be honest… but maybe it’s for something else?

The inventor is credited as Satish Kumar Sampath, who used to work for Google in London, but registered under the American Google headquarters, and filed in February 2010.

Are we ready for Google Comics folks? Could we finally have a reason to go to Google Plus?
