Facebook app's camera now makes GIFs

How do you do, fellow kids: Facebook now lets you create wacky GIFs, because of course

Facebook testing GIF creator as camera option in iOS app

The feature is gradually being rolled out, as is often the case, so it's not available for all users just yet. The option allows users to create short GIFs and add a plethora of effects and filters.

However, the report also mentions that the feature was only spotted on selected iOS based devices, which means that this will be an iOS-specific feature, with Android users looking at an uncertain launch date. Facebook confirmed that the GIF maker is now in testing phase and is only accessible to a handful of users, but it is being gradually rolled out. If you do have access to it, you'll find it to the right after opening the standard camera feature. The new function follows last month's full rollout of a GIF comment button on Facebook that allows users to search an online library of existing GIFs and post them directly in Facebook's comments sections.

If you are a fan of the GIF format, then the headline must have excited you. The GIFs created by the Facebook GIF maker could not be sent to other services, and if the user save them, they are converted back to videos. And what better way to express yourself on Facebook than using GIFs.
