We’ve all used GIFs some time on the Internet to better express our emotions, or to answer a question, or to troll someone and what not. The list goes on. In essence, GIFs can express what words can’t. that is what makes them so useful. We don’t even know when it all started. So Facebook is reminding us by holding a 30-year birthday for the GIF by paying a tribute.
Now, Facebook will include an exclusive button for GIFs. Before, you would have had to go hunting for an appropriate GIF and that alone would put people off. With the new button, expect an onslaught of GIFs everywhere. It will be quite simple to use. Simply tap the button, type the keyword, and Viola! You have all the GIFs you can use at your disposal.
Moreover, as a birthday present, Facebook is going to feature some popular celebrities in GIFs. These GIFs will be created by GIPHY Studios. Again, this feature seems to be a server-side update. And it will arrive when it wants to. So, get ready for GIFs everywhere!
