Inside the comment box, next to the emoji icon, users will find a small GIFs icon alongside it. Once you tap it, a search bar will pop up to type in what you’re looking for, resulting in a collection of moving pictures to choose to convey your thoughts from.
GIFs have been usable on Facebook for awhile now through Messenger and comments, but only if they were shared via services like Giphy or Imgur. Facebook also rolled out the GIF button years prior, but it was limited to only a few users. But now the service is available to all, and since it’s powered by Giphy and Tenor, there is a vast selection of GIFs to choose from.
