Facebook hasn’t been a very GIF-friendly part of the Web. It’s still not. But a third-party Flash workaround lets you incorporate these animated gems into your timeline anyway. The fine folks over at the Betaworks-owned Giphy have given us what Facebook has yet to implement natively: embedded GIFs that play in your timeline. Well, not exactly GIFs. Giphy actually creates a Flash video that it embeds in your timeline. Still, it’s pretty cool. Just search for a GIF on Giphy, and when you find the 10-20 frames that really nail how you feel, click on the share to Facebook button. If you’re thinking this will mean that officially-sanctioned native GIFs are coming from Facebook, don’t hold your breath. Facebook issued a statement about Giphy’s “GIF” embedding work-around: “Facebook does not support animated GIFs.” Will GIFs overtake Facebook the way they have Tumblr? Probably not to as a great of a degree. The embed format isn’t optimal: GIFs don’t autoplay, so they function more like short videos.
