Moving images can now replace still pictures in fun new feature
Facebook has just added a feature to their commenting functionality – and we’ve all been waiting for it.
What would we do without photo comments on Facebook?
How would our friends know how we really felt if we couldn’t post a meme of a shocked cat on their status?
Well, prepare for our social networking to get even better.
Now you can not only post pictures but also react with GIFs.
So that means that instead of a boring old picture of a cat looking shocked, you can comment with an actual moving image of a cat putting a paw to its little mouth.
This. Changes. Everything. Here are some GIFs you might like to use.
All you have to do is click or tap into the comment box as if you were writing one as usual.
On the right there are the normal icons inviting you to add a photograph to your comment (unless the page has disabled this).
Now you’ll also see a small rectangle with the letters ‘GIF’ on it. Click on this and you’ll be able to search any keyword you like.
The Giphy database, which is hooked up to Facebook, pretty much has any GIF you could ever dream of using – so fill your boots.
Watch the video above to learn more about adding GIFs to comments on Facebook statuses.
