I'm buying Giphy on Facebook, which means that the way you send and receive GIFs on the internet can change forever. The service claims that more than 700 million people watch Giphy content every day, and many of these comments come from the most popular apps on the Internet (from Apple's iMessage to TikTok and Twitter), which most users see as Giphy's Share and post GIFs using APIs and archives.
At least some of these services will not want Facebook products to be integrated with integrated products. Not only do these companies generally prefer not to rely on major competitors, Facebook's services are not only private (like Cambridge Analytica scandals) and stability (if many major mobile apps were down earlier this month due to a small Facebook SDK bug). There was a problem.
Facebook says developers can rely on Giphy just like before the acquisition. As before, use Giphy in most apps. “People can still upload GIFs. Developers and API partners can continue to access GIPHY's API. Vishal Shah, vice president of product for Instagram, said in a blog post on Friday.
It should be noted that Giphy's GIFs or stickers do not have tracking pixels, cookies or other built-in user tracking mechanisms. Gephy API can view search terms according to Twitter account of messaging service Telegram but not all data. Giphy confirmed in Verge that Telegram's tweets were correct. However, there is always a chance for Facebook to change the way Giphy's lineup goes. In addition, apps and services that use Giphy may discontinue service support at any time, regardless of what Facebook has made regarding the service.
Here are some apps and services with built-in Giphy integration that might be affected by the acquisition. Each app asked if we plan to change how it works with Giphy. This is actually the beginning of Giphy. Services not listed by us, such as Pinterest and Reddit, can share and post files on Giphy, but are not directly integrated with the current service.
Mailchimp allows you to insert GIFs provided by Giphy. Built-in tools. Mailchimp says it plans to continue offering Giphy integration to Verge .

Signal Using the
signal, you can search for GIFs that can be included in iOS messages. Android and Giphy are one of the services that provide signal source GIFs. The signal itself is billed for end-to-end crypto privacy and security-centric messaging services, and the company has not revealed whether it plans to remove Giphy as a GIF source after this acquisition.
This app already implements GIF. Search by privacy protection according to Signal founder Moxie Marlinspike . This means that Facebook may not be able to get data from Giphy GIFs shared by Signal.
Since the acquisition of Giphy from FB, many people ask if they should be concerned about searching for Giphy in Signal.
Signal is already using a privacy approach to prevent gif search providers from receiving user data: https://t.co/PhfdHb9aJ0
— Moxie Marlinspike (@moxie) May 15, 2020 The Verge :
Privacy and security is the heart of everything that Signal does. Signal used a privacy-protected proxy from the start to hide search terms from gif search providers, and the Giphy SDK is not included in the app at all.
Signal services do not see the plain text content of the content being transmitted at all. The TLS connection is negotiated directly with Giphy and received during GIF search, or Giphy does not know who issued the request because the TCP connection is proxied through the signaling service.
This privacy feature was later built into Signal. It has been further expanded with additional improvements in November 2016 and November 2017. You can read more on the blog:

Part of Giphy is provided when searching for GIFs in Twitter's composition box. Twitter also relies on Tenor (formerly Riffsy) for GIFs, so Twitter's default GIF search will soon rely on this language instead of Giphy.
Twitter and Facebook have a long history of spats. After Facebook acquired Instagram in 2012, Twitter blocked access to Instagram's ability to allow APIs for users to find friends on new services. Instagram today has blocked the ability to display photos on Twitter.
