The ability to be able to comment as a GIF on a Facebook thread was introduced in June 2017.
Are you a fan of GIFs? I think they are a great way to express an emotion in a humorous way, and I expect people will be using this feature more and more as time goes by.
One of the cool features that I do like about this new function is the way in which it displays “Trending GIFs”.
Facebook are also integrating a “GIF Maker” into their native camera. I assume this will work in a similar way to the Instagram Boomerang App – time will tell.
