What is a GIF?

A GIF, or Graphics Interchange Format, is a set of pictures that combined create an interruptible loop of motion.

GIFs where introduced by CompuServe back in 1987, and as the internet grew they become an important way of communication, messaging and social media content amongst internauts.

A GIF file is usually saved under .gif, and the file itself is light compared to other media resources, hence being widely use on social media.
