Sometimes a picture says more than words could, hence the saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words”. This is also why emojis can sometimes convey our mood and feelings better than written words, and now it looks like Facebook is spicing up the comments section on its app.

In a report from TechCrunch, it looks like Facebook has started to roll out the GIF button for comments on the Facebook app. What this means is that users will now be able to quickly and easily attach GIFs to their comments, which should help make things a little more fun. Note that this feature isn’t “new” per se as Facebook has actually been testing it out for a few months now, but we guess it looks like Facebook has decided that the feature is now ready for prime time.

Before this if users wanted to attach GIFs, they’d have to link the URL of the GIF that they wanted to attach, which wasn’t quite as ideal, especially if users aren’t familiar with where to find GIFs. Alternatively we guess one could use keyboards like Gboard to attach GIFs, but now Facebook will have it as a native feature, so if you enjoy sending GIFs to your friends, then this is a feature to look out for, which like we said should be rolling out to all users now.
