Facebook is going to test “gifs” in the comments.
In December, the General Director of Facebook mark Zuckerberg (Mark Zuckerberg) has hinted that the social network will have new opportunities to embed animated images.
“Everyone loves a good GIF, and we know that people want to use them in the comments, — said the representative of Facebook. — So we’re going to test the ability to add GIF image in the comments and share new information when we can, but until we cease to repeat that this is just a test”.

It is unknown how long the testing. Apparently, the company’s goal is to find out whether the users of such a possibility.
Today, to answer an animated picture, a man walks on a third party website and copies out the link in Facebook. This works, but requires a lot of unnecessary actions. Thanks to the new feature, users can start to use less of the reaction and to give preference to GIF-images.
A new opportunity is unlikely to surprise users with Facebook. Most likely, next to the buttons placement of pictures and stickers will be one responsible for “gifs”. The company is not told whence they are taken, but most likely, it is one of the popular sites — Giphy or Tenor. Their capabilities are usually built into your messaging.
The innovation will be available to a small number of users, but if will gain in popularity, the animated pictures can send in comments every.
