It’s been a long time coming, but Facebook has finally granted users the power to communicate in GIFs on the social network.
The company has quietly rolled out an update that lets GIFs play natively within the News Feed. Just copy the URL of your favorite moving image, post it in the status update bar and watch it appear in all its hypnotic glory.
Tests seemed to indicate that the functionality doesn’t yet work in comments, so we’re still a ways away from being able to respond to a lame status update with Kanye un-smiling.
Also, you don’t have to worry about your News Feed becoming a torrent of distracting moving images. The GIFs don’t begin their endless loop until you click play.
