GIF from media center posts as still image

I attempted to post a GIF from Giphy via the Hootsuite media center. It posted correctly as a GIF on Twitter, but as a still image on Facebook and Instagram, even though the Hootsuite preview showed a moving GIF for both.

I've previously tried copying and pasting a GIF link in my draft (as directed in the help center), but that didn't work for Twitter or Instagram. Is there no way to do a single post that will correctly embed a GIF on all three platforms?



  • I cannot post GIF to Instagram, too. It worked for Twitter, but still image for Instagram. Any help? Why would Hootsuite offer /gif functionality for instagram posting if it does not work?
