Facebook now supports animated GIF files
Facebook added the long-awaited by many users Support for GIF-s. When posting a link to the animated image, the image will appear in the feed in its full glory. If you upload the file itself on Facebook, however, it is converted to a still image, which means that the dream of many fun to use GIF instead of a profile picture still can not be true.
Publication of animated GIF-s so far is limited to personal profiles. The pages can not take advantage of this functionality. Facebook explained the limitation of the experimental nature of the new feature and said they wanted to make sure that it is indeed a desirable and used before extending it to all types of accounts.
