Nokia Makes It Easier to Share Cinemagraphs
Nokia today announced an update to its Cinemagraph lens in order to improve sharing options on social networks. Since some social networks, such as Facebook, don't support animated GIFs directly, the updated Cinemagraph lens allows users to post their GIF to Nokia's servers. They can then provide a link to the GIF in a social media post, email, or other message. When message recipients or others click on the link, they'll be taken to Nokia's servers, which will display the animated picture in their browser. The update is free for Nokia's Lumia Windows Phone devices.
