Here, are few tips on how you can insert rage faces into YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and all the other places where it’s not possible to insert smilies.
How to Insert Memes and Smilies into Chat, Comments, and Posts automatically with this Extension?
First step, after installation of the extension, obviously you need to open the website where you need to insert memes or smilies. We decided to use it on YouTube.
Click inside the text box where you want to add smilies and after that, click on the Webmemes icon in the toolbar so that the list of available smilies and meme images is opened. Once you do that, simply select the meme that you want to use and you should see something similar to a link placed to the text input box. As you probably already know, live links cannot be posted to YouTube comments, so in order to post an image there, Webmemes uses its own image link. The extension will read this link and replace it with an actual link to the selected image, that’s how Webmemes works.
Users with browsers without the Webmemes plugin will only be able to see the strange link, see image above, but don’t worry versions of the plugins for them should come out very soon.
Webmemes is a great plugin which does its job very well. The only downside would be that in order for all this to work properly other people also need to have Webmemes installed. This means that if you’re using it, your friends also have to use it. Download and try it out absolutely free.
