Giphy is not an acronym which means it does not have a full form. Giphy is the name of a search engine and online database. Giphy provides the opportunity for people to share GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) files. GIF files are animated image files, they also appear as short videos with no sound. The use of Gif files is very common on social media.


People use GIFs to spice up their post so it can draw people's attention to their posts. There are some situations that you only need Gif files to clearly communicate your thoughts to people. GIFs are easy to create and if you don't know how to create it, you should try and make it a point of duty. When you use GIFs, it allows you to express yourself and relate with others in a fun way. Giphy has made it possible for it's users to be sharing their content with their friends.

Giphy is already known to be a full word. If you are not too familiar with this, this is an online search engine wherein you can look for different GIFs. GIF means Graphic Interface Format. People are more familiar with a GIF as something animated that does not come with any sound. As you already know, videos usually come with sounds. In fact, videos may seem incomplete when you do not hear what other people are saying.

For GIFs, it is already expected that you are not going to hear anything. There are various GIFs that have been created for almost any occasion that you can think of. It will surely be fun to check out GIPHY for the best GIFs you are searching for.

Have you ever wondered what the word Giphy means? I'm going to provide you with everything you need to know about Giphy. Giphy is simply an online search engine and database that makes it easy for users to search for and share a kind of short looping video with no sound. Giphy was created in 2013 by its founders Jace Cooke and Alex Chung.

The type of short looping video with no sound you would get through Giphy resembles animated GIFs. The initial operation of the site was only to make it easy for people to search and get GIFs but later it was expanded so that users can also post animated GIFs on the website and also share them on Facebook.

Since its creation, Giphy has managed to be among top 100 websites. Sharing of GIFs is now also on twitter which means you can share GIFs on Twitter simply by sharing the GIFs link
