When it comes to communication on social media platforms, animated GIF images are perhaps as important as emojis. Now it's going yet another step further by testing a GIF creator. GIFs can also be combined with existing effects available in the Facebook camera. The feature has already rolled out to some users ... Keep in mind Facebook only recently started embracing GIFs, as it allows users to send them in messages and post them in comments.

Speaking of GIFs, did you know 13 billion GIFs were sent within the past year on Facebook Messenger alone? It's easy to find out if you're included in the small group of users who get to test it out.

Facebook had instead put the emphasis on video, which also bring a lively quality to the News Feed. Normal lets you take photos and record normal videos, while GIF lets you record a three-second clip.

If you thought Facebook was running out of ways to help you bombard your friends' news feeds, think again.

The addition was first spotted today by The Next Web, which notes that the GIFs shot via this feature only last a few seconds.

As discovered by The Next Web, the social network has quietly updated the app's camera with the option to make a short GIF, which you can then share in a Facebook Story or on your profile. If you want to save the GIFs to your device, unfortunately they can only be saved as videos, according to The Verge. Sounds like a page out of Apple's book.
