    Our Story

    The world is changing, and content is changing with it.

    We watch GIFs instead of YouTube videos, read Tweets instead of New York Times articles. Content is becoming shorter and its distribution more democratic, and traditional media, artists, and brands must adapt to this new reality to flourish. At Gfycat, we’re building the tools that consumers want and brands need to succeed in the new content landscape.

    Gfycat is the world's largest user-generated short video platform. We provide superior tools for creating and sharing GIFs in stunning visual quality. As we grow we’re shaping the way the Internet creates and consumes video content.
