Facebook Now Allows GIF Images in Posts

Facebook-Now-Allows-GIF-ImaFacebook’s major design incompatibility was the lack of ability to accept GIF’s within the posts. As per a recent update in Facebook, users can now post GIF’s in their facebook posts without having them to redirect to an external site when the link is opened. These GIF animations would load right inside the post, allowing users to see it play on the same screen. But there’s a catch…the GIF’s should only come from Giphy as only GIF links from GIPHY would play in Facebook. Post this update, GIPHY had a huge traffic causing it to temporarily crash, but it’s up and working now.

All you just need to post the complete GIF link in the post, and watch it play. This would appear in your profile as well as in news feeds of your friends. So, now users can embed whacky GIF’s inside their posts and have better networking.
