What is a GIF and why should I use it?

A GIF is an image file format that’s still commonly used today due to it’s versatility with various systems. It is like a flipbook of images that endlessly loops.

The popularity of GIFs doesn’t seem to be slowing down despite how old the technology is. It’s almost as if it was created for our generation that feeds off micro content. Almost anything remotely interesting/cute/funny is clipped, converted into a GIF and used on social media or chats.
