Adding GIFs to Facebook

Several months ago I spent a fair amount of time thinking about how to spice up my Facebook banner. As part of this exercise, I played around with a number of different file formats within Facebook, and I tried to get one of my self-created GIFs to load in my status bar.

That is why I got so excited this morning when I read that as of today, May 29th, 2015, GIFs will now work on Facebook!!!

Since I have not yet experimented with this new functionality, I will not attempt to describe the process for posting GIFs. Instead, I will simply provide several links to information that I have found this morning. I’m sure there will be plenty more in the days to come, but I wanted to be the first to make this announcement on the IT Training Tips blog!
