How do you do, fellow kids: Facebook now lets you create wacky GIFs, because of course

Some Facebook users will now be able to create their own GIFs using the camera function in the social networking giant's app. You can also add the GIF to your Facebook story, post it to your profile, or save it to your device. You can't send them to other services, and you can only save them as videos.

The GIF option wasn't there on my Android phone and on my friend's iPhone running the latest version of Facebook.

If you have it, you'll see a Normal/GIF tab at the top of the screen when you tap the camera icon in the app. Have a look for yourself, and maybe GIF your cat if you feel like it.

Primetime Emmy Award nominations
