From an adorable knitting gnome to Wonder Woman happy dancing, here are GIPHY's Top 10 GIFs of 2017!
You see them everywhere -- on Facebook, Twitter, and even in your group text messages. In fact, I use them in my texts all the time. GIFs are all I ever send in response sometimes. (Seriously, just ask my boyfriend. He'll tell you I'm the "GIF Queen.") They're the perfect way to communicate one's feelings without having to say anything.
More than two billion GIFs are shared every single day by more than 300 million people! Those little moving pictures are such an integral part of our every day conversations, and without a site like GIPHY, we couldn't express ourselves. Well, I guess we could ... But where's the fun in that?
