It goes without saying that Gifs, emoticons, emojis and Memes are everywhere on social media. We use them all the time, to express a point, to send a quick reply, to make people laugh. Gifs are great and Memes are funny as hell. But do you use them at work? And if not, why not? It’s all about context right? Obviously, you wouldn’t send a Gif to the Chairman of the Board, but to your manager? Sure, if they are approachable and used to receiving these types of communications. With much more informal communication channels now in use at work – such as Slack and Whatsapp the use of alternative messages such as Gifs and Memes are even more prevalent. And if you look after your organisation’s social media profiles then you need to know where to go to find great Gifs, Memes and emojis. Here is a list of where to go for a great Gif and other creative messaging.
