How to Post Video on Facebook

Adding a video to Facebook is a great way to share your favorite videos. However, it is important to ensure that the video is of high quality and follows Facebook's rules and guidelines. Fortunately, there are several steps you can take to make sure your video is ready to upload.

First, you must log into your Facebook account. Once you are logged in, you will be able to view your profile page. From here, you can add videos or photos to your album. Alternatively, you can also create albums on your web browser. This is a more user-friendly approach, and allows you to have more control over your media.

Facebook allows users to upload videos up to 4 GB in size and up to 120 minutes in length. Facebook also has a feature that will help you share your video with the most relevant audience. This is particularly helpful for people with a large number of followers, and can help spread the word about your brand.

Once you've uploaded your video, you can add comments to it. This can help encourage people to share their longer thoughts and opinions, and drive traffic to your website. However, Facebook only allows users to post comments with an 8,000 character limit. If you have a long video, it may take some time for the video to upload. If you're uploading a long video, you might want to connect to a wireless network to reduce your data usage. You can also add a call-to-action on your video, which can help encourage engagement and conversion.

Facebook also allows users to edit videos before they are published. This is particularly helpful if you want to change the title, the description, or the privacy options. You can also add custom thumbnails to your video, which help capture people's attention. You can also choose to set the audience for your post. The basic options are Friends Except Acquaintances, Public, or Custom.

You can also upload videos from your phone gallery. To do this, you first open the Photos app, which is located in the menu on the left side of your page. Once the Photos app is open, you should see a section that says "Albums." From here, you can add videos to an album. You can also add contributors to an album.

Once you've uploaded your video, Facebook will display a pop-up window. You can then add a caption to the video, and you can select which audience your post will go to. If you're posting a video that's private, you can select "Only Me" or "Friends." These options will only be shown to you, and will not show up in your News Feed.

If you haven't yet posted a video on Facebook, you can start by clicking the "Add Video" button on the lower right corner of the screen. This will open a new window. Then, select the video you want to upload and click "Post". You'll be notified when your video is ready to upload.
