GIFs have become a method of communication in themselves – so when Instagram rolled out a GIF feature to accessorise our Insta Stories, we were pretty delighted. 

For weeks we punctuated our night out snaps and selfies with animated emblems, but in recent days, Instagram users have complained that the GIF action no longer works on their phones. 

Tech giants Instagram and Snapchat have both yanked their GIF action off the platforms after users pointed out that some of the GIFs being hosted on the social media sites were racist and degrading. 

The platforms were using integrated GIFs from GIF website Giphy.

The racist GIF which caused offence portrayed a 'n***** death counter' alongside disturbing imagery of a game show host encouraging the number to increase.

The vile GIF caused the action to be removed from the sites until a review can be undertaken. 

In a statement to Tech Crunch, Giphy said: 

'A user discovered an offensive GIF sticker in our library, and we immediately removed it per our content guidelines.'

'After investigation of the incident, this sticker was available due to a bug in our content moderation filters specifically affecting GIF stickers. We have fixed the bug and have re-moderated all of the GIF stickers in our library.'

'The GIPHY staff is also further reviewing every GIF sticker by hand and should be finished shortly.'

'We take full responsibility for these recent events and sincerely apologize to anyone who was offended.'

There's no word yet on when exactly the GIF feature will be back up and running – here's to hoping it's soon but without the offensive content pl,ease and thanks.

If you work in an office, you probably send a lot of GIFS to your co-workers throughout the day.

If you have a big group of friends, you probably send a lot of GIFS to each other about your daily ramblings.

If you're still in school, there is no doubt GIFS flying across the air as the teacher tries to tell you something about long division.

We are now living in a world of GIFS – and it's totally our guilty pleasure. We love them.

And now, Whatsapp are finally catching on to our love for moving images as it has just announced that GIFS are coming to the messaging service. Hurrah!

WABetaInfo reports that it'll be really easy to use as well since Whatsapp are just going to auto-play the images and not save them as a video.

GIFS, galore!

It's safe to say that GIFs have taken on a life of their own.

The Internet LOVES them and nearly every Whatsapp conversation with the girls has the odd GIF thrown in, too.

GIPHY has been the prominent website to find the exact snap you're looking for, but now it's gone one further by creating an app that will let you communicate solely via GIFs. Yes!

Just like the emoji keyboard, they GIPHY keyboard will work the same way and will also allow you to share your desired GIF on every platform; texts, Facebook messenger, iMessage, Whatsapp, email and more.

It also has loads of cool features, like the #8BALL, which will generate an answer in GIF form to any yes-or-no question you type in.

We think we might ONLY use this while communicating from now on.

We all know GIFs are great. They let you get across a whole range of emotions with a single sad-looking pug.

But sometimes the range of animated images available on the Internet doesn't quite satisfy your needs, right? And that's where Giphy Cam comes in handy. 

Giphy Cam is a new app that allows you to take a short video and then turn it into a GIF.

And it even has a feature for adding in your own captions, which, you know, will give your GIF ten times more personality (because you're gas). 

You can also edit them for length, play around with silly colours, effects and more and then share the finished masterpiece with your friends.

January is a loooong month. Maybe not technically…but it sure feels like it, doesn’t it?! So, instead of listing all of the things we can’t wait to see the back of in February, like dark mornings and Christmas weight, we looked at some of the things we'll miss from January! 

1. Hot water bottles
The season of hot water bottle is almost coming to an end, so snuggle up and enjoy while you can!

2. Starbucks winter flavours
The red cups will soon be a thing of the past so it’s time to grab that double chocolate peppermint mocha hot chocolate with whipped cream before they disappear till next year!

3. Winter coats
Soon we’ll have to go shopping for a light jacket for spring time and that fur-trimmed hood will be packed away until October, sob!

4. Christmas jumpers
Some may argue the Christmas jumper season is well over, but we reckon as long as it doesn’t have Rudolph on the front it’s fair game for another few weeks.

5. Cadbury’s Roses and other Christmas-time treats
It’s that time of the year when everyone clears the junk food out of their homes…and into their offices. So, yes. We are still eating Roses if you must know.

6. Being organised
The New Year makes us organise our lives perfectly (until February). Armed with new diaries and fresh pens, we feel we can take over the world, one list at a time.

We LOVE us some Taylor Swift. Her videos are great, her songs are catchy and most importantly, she doesn't care what anyone thinks!

Which is why audience cams just keep catching her out dancing like no one is watching. You go girl!

1. We can't stop looking at the girl in the blue dress throwing shapes like there's no tomorrow

2. Bet Lorde is regretting she didn't side with Katy Perry after these dance moves…

 3. Taylor, everyone knows you keep your dance moves to Jay-Z songs for the car. They're private. This is why:

4. Don't lie, Lorde – you are MORTIFIED. 

5.The time that she and Selena Gomez weren't taking no sh** from no one

6. "Psst, Taylor. Here, we're not being bad but can you STOP dancing? Thanks."

7. That time she made Ed Sheeran and Yoko Ono very uncomfortable

8. Shimmy shimmy

9. How big was the box, Taylor?

10. God bless the audience cam

Ah, Taylor, how we love your dodgy dance moves. We're pretty convinced she does it for us at this point. Thanks, Taylor!
