Instagram GIF'S

Finally…..Instagram catches up with the rest of the world and adds the ability to add a GIF in the comments.

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Instagram chief Adam Mosseri announced recently that you can now post GIFs in Instagram comments. With a simple search and share you can GIF to your hearts content but…

Does anyone actually GIF a **** anymore?

The ability to comment with GIF’s has been around for an age so why were Instagram so slow to catch on? I mean we could already add GIF’s to stories and reply with GIF’s too, so interacting with  GIFs has been a thing on the gram for quite some time.

Despite their late arrival to the comment party, this gives all users a new way to interact, engage and comment across the platform, which is always exciting, if only for a while.

Make sure you are using the latest version if the app to use this new feature.
