HI Omid, how do you post a GIF to facebook? I tried to upload one to your page on Facebook and it doesnt work, it loads but it looks like just an image, not a moving GIF.

Hi mom
For now facebook does not support .GIF formats, Those animated pictures that you see in facebook has been posted with some "hacks" and "tricks" as yet facebook does not officially allow animated GIF files because of technical reasons.

hmmmm, well thats interesting, dumb but interesting.....

so if you can change the extension on an mp3 to gif and they work then can you change the extension on a gif to mp3 and it will work.... that would probably be too easy though....

Try that and see if it works...

When facebook officially does not allow them, better don't bother use other tricks for that, even Google Plus stopped animated GIFs and only show still frame of that.
