How to share your GIF on Facebook

Since Facebook doesnt allow you to upload directly your GIFs in a post (you can directly upload GIFs to Facebook Messenger only) you will have to host your GIF somewhere before posting it on Facebook.

We recommend Giphy for this purpose. Here are the steps below. 

1. Go to http://giphy.com/upload

2. Upload your GIF and copy the GIF link (ends in .gif)

3. Paste your GIF link in Facebook!

For more information about sharing GIFs in Facebook please refer to this great article on Giphy.

Hi David, 

Try shortening the GIF link here: http://prntscr.com/epjysy

I'm not finding the Link generator in the platform to share to: facebook twitter or Instagram.

Hi SK, 

It could be on the Advanced Tab next to Share(in case you are seeing the old UI). Thanks
