Facebook is finally letting us add GIFs in comments1
You know that you can already post GIFs in Facebook’s status updates, right? But how can you do this in comments? It is actually dead easy because you have a brand new dedicated button for that. It takes just a click or tap on it to add a GIF from a list of trending animations. There's a search bar as well for those times when you're looking for a GIF animation of Kermit the frog mashing a typewriter.
To mark the GIF's birthday, Facebook is also introducing an exclusive selection of GIFs starring popular Internet celebrities like DNCE, Logan Paul, Amanda Cerny, DREEZY, Patrick Starr, Violet Benson, Wuz Good, Brandi Marie, and Landon Moss. You can find those GIFs by searching for #GIFparty when sharing a GIF on Facebook or Messenger or by visiting GIPHY.com/Facebook.
Another interesting Facebook initiative is an online poll for US users asking them for the pronunciation of the word „GIF“ – with a hard “G" as in the word “golf”, or with a soft “G" as in “ginger”. Feel like casting a vote on this vital issue? The poll should pop up inside the Facebook app on your phone, and if it doesn't, just visit Facebook's Facebook page (yes, there is one).
