I got a status from a good friend of mine as she is trying to figure out can you upload a animated gif file onto your facebook photo albums or profile.
Does anybody know how to upload a gif file on Facebook? Is it possible? I did some research and most people say its not possible, but some people say they can get the animation to repeat once.... ???? HELP please :]
Can it be done? I ask this community because I know someone will know
no you can't. I know, i've tried and you can't upload an animated GIF.
Yes, you can. What you have to do is upload a small animated gif (about 50 KB or less)as your profile photo (Facebook will flatten animated gifs which are to large, but do not detect the smaller ones). It will then be in your profile's album. Your icon itself will NOT be animated. However, you will see it as animated in your Facebook profile photos folder, and by going to that photo, & clicking on "share", it will appear on your wall as animated. - Deb Wong
