Facebook Enables GIFs in Comments on the Format’s 30th Anniversary


Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the GIF bitmap image format today, Facebook has finally enabled the use of GIFs in comments for everyone. “Today we’re introducing the ability to add GIFs in comments for all people on Facebook globally”, announced the social networking giant in an official newsroom post

We know people love communicating with GIFs on Messenger, and we’re also making it easier to use GIFs on Facebook.

Just tap the GIF button when you go to make a comment, type in what you’re looking to say, and add the GIF that really nails it!

GIPHY Studios has also joined the GIF party with Facebook, creating 20 GIFs featuring some of the internet’s most recognizable faces: DNCE, Logan Paul, Amanda Cerny, DREEZY, Patrick Starr, Violet Benson, Wuz Good, Brandi Marie, and Landon Moss. They will be available to use by searching #GIFparty when sharing a GIF on Facebook or Messenger or by visiting GIPHY.com/Facebook.

Btw, how do you pronounce GIF? With a “hard g” or a “soft g”?
