How to Set Up a Cover Video on Facebook

Have you seen the new cover videos that pages can use on Facebook yet? We’ve watched several company’s roll theirs out and there is some very creative content out there!

If you would like to use a video for the cover on your brand’s Facebook page, here is how you do it!

Disclaimer: One thing to keep in mind as you are building your video is that just like a regular cover photo, these are open to the public and anyone can see them!

Step 1: Click on the Camera icon that shows up in the upper left-hand corner of your cover photo

Step 2: Select to either Upload Photo/Video or to Choose From Videos on your timeline

Step 3: If you Upload Photo/Video select content from your computer to upload. Videos should be at least 820 x 312 pixels and between 20 and 90 seconds. For best results, use a video that is 820 x 456 pixels!

Step 4: Once the video has been uploaded, you can position the video to make any aesthetic adjustments for optimal viewing.

Step 5: Now select up to 10 thumbnail options for your video. These are used when someone hovers their cursor over your page name to find out more about you.

Step 6: Select Publish and Enjoy!
