Gettin’ Giphy with It
Why GIFs are the Animated New Age of Communication:
In this ever expanding and evolving world of technology, we’re always looking for newer, faster and better ways to communicate and connect with the ones around us. Remember how difficult it was to decode the inner workings of the mind of your first crush through simple texting? Kids today have it easy, the struggle was so real! First there were emojis, then there were memes and now a new era has submerged, the dawn of the GIF.
I mean sure, emojis are pretty instrumental when it comes to explaining just how hungry you are via text 🍕🌮🍔🍟🍝🍗🍫 or when you’re so angry you’ve reached #SatanStatus 👿. But as we’ve found, emojis can totally be misconstrued. Turns out, that brown swirly emoji you’ve been using to describe your sh*tty day at work (💩), isn’t poop after all, it’s chocolate frosting. Oy Vey! It’s impossible and unrealistic to assume that our peers perceive everything the same way as we do, so why did we think Emojis were any different?
Never fear, there’s now an unmistakable way to get that heavy #eyeroll across to your bff via text and social media, the GIF!
Popular culture has, and will continue to always be a major influence in the lives of today’s population. Thus, imagine being able to express yourself and being able to communicate free flowingly through the usage of pop culture? The communication upgrade you’re looking for is the one and only, GIF. Now you have the full-blown, animated rage of Khaleesi’s fire breathing dragons to explain your hatred for broccoli or your mother-in-law for that matter.
Envision the ways you can now connect with your pals! There’s no way they’ll misconstrue your messages with a constantly moving image of your favorite binge-worthy Netflix show…How could they, they’ve seen all 456 episodes of Law and Order too.
So go now, and download the easy to use GIF Keyboard in your app store. Oh and PS. you can now upload your own GIFs into Giphy.com, if you’re feeling ambitious that is…
