Further, Facebook is celebrating 30th anniversary of GIF by announcing what it calls, "a GIF party with some of your favorite stars". However, given the popularity of the animated images, Facebook will likely also make the feature available to all users soon. After introducing the ability to link to GIFs back in 2015, now the company is introducing a dedicated GIF button for all of its users. And to mark the day, the social media giant has released a new update that lets you share GIFs in the comments section of the posts (finally!).
Facebook users exchanged almost 13 billion GIFs on Messenger in 2016 alone, according to the company, which works out to about 25,000 GIFs each minute. Just tap the GIF button and select one of the trending GIFs.
'They will be available to use by searching #GIFparty when sharing a GIF on Facebook or Messenger or by visiting GIPHY.com/Facebook'.
The idea is very simple and the only real surprise is that it has taken Facebook so long to roll out the feature.

More than 13 billion GIFs were sent a year ago via Facebook Messenger after the company made the format usable on the chat service. It means 25000 GIFs every minute. Also, its busiest day for GIFs was 1 January this year where more than 400 million GIFs were sent.
In addition to this, the social network giant is holding an online poll in the USA to ask people what is the correct pronunciation of the word "GIF" according to them.
But one thing that people have not agreed on is to how to actually pronounce it. Facebook is setting up a poll on its official page which asks the question: "hard g" or "soft g"?
