How to Post GIFs on Facebook – GIFs can be found in posts, comments, events, and group messages, among other places on Facebook. GIFs can be used for anything from a congratulatory message to a sarcastic comment in a text message.

You can take a picture or video with your phone, but you can’t record a GIF without additional software, and while pictures and videos are easy to find with a quick Google search, finding the right GIF can be difficult. I’ll go over everything you need to know about finding or making GIFs, as well as how to share them on Facebook.

Where can I post GIFs on Facebook?

GIFs are just as easy to share on Facebook as photos, and they can be found in many of the same places. Here’s a quick rundown of what’s going on:

• GIF-only posts
• Posts with text
• Posts with multiple GIFs
• Profile GIFs (recorded in the Facebook app)
• Personal messages
• GIF-only comments

Finding GIFs in Facebook

Using Facebook’s built-in GIF libraries is the simplest way to add a GIF to a post, comment, or message. You can use an existing GIF file if you want to convey a general message or stick to a general theme. Facebook has over 1500 GIFs to explore.

When you’re writing a post, select the three-dot menu button beneath the text field, and the GIF option will appear below. When you click the GIF button, you can use relevant keywords to search for the GIF you want to use – for example, if you wanted to find the Drake Clapping GIF, just search “Drake Clapping” and scroll through the top results.

It’s even simpler to include a GIF in a comment or message. The GIF button is on the right side of the text field when writing a comment, and it’s always directly beneath where you type messages in Messenger.

How to Post any GIF you found or saved

You might need a specific GIF file that isn’t in the Facebook library, or you might want to create a GIF from another video you found online. You have a few options for accomplishing this. There’s a good chance you’ve seen the GIF before on the internet, and it’s in Giphy. Although they don’t have a lot of GIF creation options, they have a large library where you can find almost any GIF you’ve seen.

If you can’t find the GIF you’re looking for, or if you’d like to make one from a video you’ve saved or found online, simply go to your browser and convert any video clip into a GIF in a matter of seconds. You can paste a video link or upload a video from your computer into the Video Converter in the Tools tab and choose Export as GIF from the conversion menu in the top right corner.

After you’ve uploaded your video and trimmed it down to the part you want to use as a GIF, click Export GIF to get your GIF in seconds.

It’s just as simple to share a GIF from your device to Facebook as it is to share one from the Facebook GIF library. Simply select the GIF file from your file browser and choose the “Photo/Video” option when making your post, comment, or message.
