*Updated 2019* How to Upload Videos To Your Company's Facebook Page

Posted by Peter Stassa on Jul 21, 2016 8:00:00 AM



In our previous blog post we shared why it is a good idea to upload your videos directly to social media sites rather than just sharing a link to the video on YouTube. In this post we'll explain step by step how to upload and share your videos on Facebook.

 

 

Step 1: Log in and navigate to your company's Facebook page, then click on the "Videos" tab below your cover photo.

Step 2:
 Scroll down to the "All Videos" section and click on "Add Video" in the top right corner.

Step 3: 
Find and select the video file you want to upload and click "Open". While the video is uploading, you can add a comment about the video, give your video a title, choose keywords, and add it to a playlist.

Under the "Thumbnail" tab on the right, you can choose a thumbnail image for your video. You can choose one of Facebook's auto-generated thumbnail images, upload your own custom image, or select any frame from the video.

Under the "Subtitles & Captions" tab you can upload an SRT file for closed captioning. Facebook does not do automatic captioning so you will need to upload your own SRT caption file if you want closed captioning to be available on your video.

Step 4: 
Once your video has finished uploading, and you've gone through all of your settings, click the blue "Next" button in the lower right corner. You can choose to publish your video to Facebook now or at a later date, and choose where on Facebook your video should appear.

You can also choose to post the video to your any of your other Facebook pages at the same time, and add a donate button to raise money for a nonprofit organization.

Step 5: 
Click the blue "Publish" or "Schedule" button in the lower right corner, to publish your video now, or schedule your video to post at the time you selected.

Your video is now uploaded to Facebook! Your post will show up on your timeline and the video will also appear in "Videos" tab on your page.
