Pictures and videos are always fun on social media. But, we all know that the true bread and butter of social media (and text messaging) are the memes and GIFs. GIFs always say it best when it comes to your reaction or feeling on something you just read, or watched. They have taken over expression with words to say the least. It goes without saying that GIFs have become a cult favorite in the last few years. While there are plenty of amazing GIF libraries available for download on your mobile device, nothing beats creating your own. Instead of sharing GIFs that have already been shared by others, create fresh ones using your own pictures and videos! Better yet, use these GIF apps to create viral worthy GIFs with your own pictures and videos!
