When it comes to GIF, its ease of sharing and the conciseness of expressing ideas are self-explanatory. Nowadays, most GIF makers allow us to convert videos from websites like YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, etc to GIF. Doing so usually requires the corresponding video URL, which loads the video source to the program.

Converting a part of your screen to GIF, however, can be a bit trickier. Most GIF makers can't help much in that case, and you need a proper screen recorder that performs good quality recordings while providing GIF as an output option, which saves the further need of getting other programs for converting the recorded video to GIF.
