choose the Gif file and right-click on the animated GIF and choose Copy Link Address.Now go to your Facebook news feed and paste the link into the ‘What’s on your mind?’ status field at the top of the page. You can use Ctrl-V on your keyboard, or right-click in the box and select Paste.IF will automatically appear below the URL. You can delete this URL for neatness (the GIF will remain there), and maybe type a message so your friends know why you’ve posted the GIF. It’s all up to you.Once you’re done, click the Post button – it’s that easy!

At least one workaround to get animated GIFs on Facebook has cropped up before, though this is the most straightforward functionality yet.
When you click Make a Post on Facebook.com or Post from your profile within the mobile app, you’ll see a list of options appear beneath the post field.
Scroll down through these options until you see GIF and click or tap it.
A grid of popular suggested GIFs will appear, built directly into Facebook for your convenience. Select one that you like to automatically insert it into the post field or use the search field to find a GIF based on a specific keyword.
