It’s been 30 years since the GIF format first made an appearance on June 15, 1987. CompuServe, a subsidiary of AOL and one of the biggest online service providers at the time, introduced GIF as a color image format replacement for their Black and White run-length encoding (RLE) format. Celebrating three decades of the image format, Facebook has introduced the ability to post GIFs in comments. Users could already post GIFs as their status updates, and now they also have an option of doing so in the comments section. Users can select from a whole library of GIFs right inside the social network.
