Was I too caught up in my own GIF making magic yesterday that I somehow missed that Tumblr launched its own GIF search engine? Yesterday, Tumblr users got a pleasant surprise upon discovering that the social platform finally did something with its huge collection of GIFs and launched the Tumblr GIF search engine.

A week after the announcement by Facebook that GIFs would now operable on user timelines, Tumblr  created a GIF search engine to compete against the massively popular Giphy. Utilizing all the GIFs that Tumblr already has indexed and cataloged on its own system, Tumblr’s GIF search engine sources all of its GIFs internally.

The search engine, though, really benefits its set of users more than anyone else outside of the Tumblr community. To access the Tumbler search engine, users simply click on the new GIF button and a search box will pop up where they can easily pin down the right kind of GIF they’re looking for.

Get to GIFing, y’all!
