The day is finally here! 3 Words: GIFs ON FACEBOOK.
You can now post GIFs on Facebook thanks to a workaround from Giphy, a search engine for GIFs and GIFs alone….How cool is that??
OK so, how does it work?
Well, GIF playback isn’t native on facebook yet, but Giphy created a code that allows GIFs to loop on Facebook. It works the way you post a video to Facebook; post the share URL from Giphy into a status update, or Embed straight onto Facebook from Giphy using the share functionality below the GIF.
It will display just like a URL preview share for a video or link, but you will see a plan button on the embed. Press play, and you’re golden.
Note! The URL MUST come from Giphy.
This is a great opportunity to show your brands character and personality. But, like mems and pictures of cats, please don’t overdue it.
