How To Post A Video On Facebook

You can contact a lot of people via Facebook. If you want to add a video to your Facebook page, here is how it is done.

In this video, I'm going to show you how to post a video on your Facebook page. There is a number of different ways you can post video on your Facebook page. But first thing you need to do is to go to the wall of your Facebook page, that's where you do status updates.

What you do is you start typing in Facebook update you want to say. Make sure you put some eye-catching text there that leads people to view what is on your Facebook page. And then, you've got two options in terms of how you show video.

One is actually putting a video file on your page. Another option is linking to a video which is already being published. So, let's first talk about uploading a video.

If you click on the video option on Facebook status updates, you will see two options within there. One option is to record from a webcam and if you do that, you obviously make sure that your webcam is installed. If you don't, it will say it can't pick it up.

The other option you've got is to upload a file. If you click on that, you will see an option to select the file from your computer. That file has to be no longer than 20 minutes in length and no more than 1 GB in size.

The other option you've got, you can actually link to the video that has already been published. So, for example, there is a video that's already on YouTube. What you can do is go to YouTube and select the video you want to view and then click on url of the YouTube page, select that url and copy it.

What you need to do is go to your Facebook status update, you'll see there is option Link, when link box comes up, you need to paste in the YouTube url. And when you do that, what it will do is you will see a preview of your video. That is the thumbnail from YouTube and there is an intro text from YouTube.

And then, before you publish, select if you want it to be public or not, you can customize who has access to the video, and then click publish. And when you publish that post on your status page, you'll see your status and you will also see photograph or picture of the video with a play button on it. If you click on the play button, you will then see a YouTube video on your Facebook page and you have the option to either view that YouTube video in full, so you can make that video take over your whole page or by clicking YouTube symbol, you can go to back to YouTube page.

And that's how to add video to your Facebook page. .
