Video: Facebook supports 3rd party GIFs
Facebook confirms it will now support animated GIFs in its News Feed.
Not everyone will see the added functionality immediately.
The move is a change in direction for Facebook which once said it won’t support GIFs because it will make News Feed “too chaotic.”
To try the new feature, Facebook users can paste a link
to a GIF from 3rd party websites like Giphy, Imgur or Tumblr into their status update box and then publish.
The GIF will be animated inline after you post.
Facebook's Messenger service also supports Giphy. – Rappler.com
