It took them quite a lot to figure out the proper way in which members of the so called `Facebook community` could upload GIFs to the giant social platform, but at the moment it looks like the Mark Zuckerberg run corporation is happy to announce the recent introduction of real, actual GIF support. Well, while it is true that Facebook is known to have introduced GIFs to their platform two years ago, it did not seem like anyone was content about the way they worked. But, at the moment, you can successfully post a GIF in the section designed for your `status` on Facebook. And most of the tech analysts are wondering if there is a stop to the gradual getting rid of words when it comes to expressing yourself over the internet. So you can finally properly post GIFs on Facebook, and this fact has raised the interest of tech experts and tech enthusiasts alike.
And the mechanism of the new Facebook GIF posting is very simple as well. All you have to do is to insert the desired link of the GIF you want to share and then click `post`. And you are done. The GIFs that you share over Facebook can have various origins as well. They can come from Imgur, Tumblr or they can be a search result for a Google Image search. And other places in addition to these.
However, the new feature which has been recently announced by senior officials talking on behalf of the giant social platform is yet available only for common Facebook users. Pages still have not the capability of posting GIFs on their timelines. But this situation is to be resolved soon by Facebook, according to their statement on the matter.
Even if posting a GIF on Facebook is now as simple as sharing an image (all you have to do is copy a link in the update section), there are some things that might improve the quality of the GIF you are posting.
For instance, the tech analysts in connection to this matter recommend that after you have copied the desired link in the update section and the GIF has populated the page, you erase the link on top. This will guarantee a cleaner look to the post you are sharing.
This is regarded as very good news by the users of Facebook. The social platform can not wait to see how things evolve, now that they have enabled this new feature.
