How To Post An Animated Gif On Facebook
Giphy, a new start-up from technology workshop Betaworks, simply thought of a workaround to upload GIFs straight onto your Facebook Timeline.
You still have to hit play, as you would certainly with a video clip, in order to see the computer animation. However it's basically the same experience.
UPGRADE from a Facebook spokesperson: "Facebook does not support animated GIFs."
If you intend to share a GIF on Facebook, very first directly over to Giphy.
Giphy permits you to search through all the GIFs that designers have actually published to the site. When you locate a GIF you wish to share, click the Facebook icon listed below the computer animation.
A standard Facebook share box will appear. From there, you can choose if you wish to share it on your Timeline, a friend's timeline, in a group, or in an exclusive message.
