On 30th anniversary of the GIF, Facebook has introduced a new feature named GIF Button in Comment Section. Facebook users can now send GIFs in comments directly from a button, allowing them to send an animated image when they just can’t find the words.
GIFs were introduced to Facebook Messenger in 2015, and since, people have sent nearly 25,000 GIFs every minute. Users have been able to send GIFs in comments by copying and pasting the URL of a GIF from an external website.
“We’re introducing the ability to add GIFs in comments for all people on Facebook globally.”
“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!”
“Each GIF is a unique and shareable morsel of human expression.”
Facebook has also introduced 20 GIFs featuring some of the internet’s most recognisable faces, including DNCE, Logan Paul and Landon Moss.
