The core idea behind BioBits is that users can turn a series of social media posts into a narrative by grouping them together. These individual post units are called “Bits.” A Bit is similar to a Facebook post in that it can contain a single photo, a video, or a photo album with some accompanying text. However, what’s unique about the Bit is that users can add to it a short voice recording to talk about its content. Users can then group bits in a unit called a “book”, which visualizes all of the Bits horizontally to form a timeline. The resulting arrangement allows users to see multiple Bits on one screen and pick photos to hear more about them, reminiscent of the experience of sharing a coffee table album with friends and family.
