Did you know that you can share Boomerang posts on Facebook Stories? Boomerangs are like animated GIFs, but instead of playing an animation in a loop, they repeatedly play an animation forward and backward. Our guide will show you how to share a Boomerang in Facebook Stories.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Facebook application on iOS.

Step 1: At the top of your News Feed, tap “Add to Story” under the “Stories” section. Note: This button will contain your profile picture.

Step 2: Swipe from left to right at the bottom of the screen to move into the “Boomerang” capture mode.

Step 3: If this is the first time you’ve activated the Boomerang capture mode in the Facebook Camera, tap “OK” on the tutorial message that appears.

Step 4: Tap the capture button at the bottom of the screen to take a Boomerang.

Step 5: From here, edit your post as normal before sharing it. When you’re done editing the post, tap “Your Story” at the bottom of the screen to quickly share the post to your Facebook Story, or tap “Next” in the bottom-right corner of the screen to choose where to share the post (for instance, you can share it on your News Feed or with specific contacts in Messenger).
