Animated snippets are everywhere on social these days. It’s time to add these GIFs to your social content if you haven’t already. And, of course, there is a great tool for that.

GIPHY lets you search, share, and discover GIFs on the Internet. GIFs are organized by category. They come from indexing based on the best and most popular GIFs and search terms across the web.  GIPHY accounts are free and let you save all of your uploaded and favorited GIFs.

Sharing on Twitter

For a GIF to play inline on Twitter, use GIPHY’s hyperlink found on the selected GIF’s Copy Link page. Place the link at the end of your tweet as the last links in the tweet are previewed. The GIF will animate inline on Twitter!

Sharing on Facebook

To play a GIF ion Facebook, use GIPHY’s hyperlink found on the selected GIF’s permalink page. The link must be the first link in the post. Once the GIF is previewed in the post, its url can be removed.
