Publishing a Video to Facebook


Facebook is the most popular social networking site in the world. In fact, in many countries, more than 50 percent of all adults have an account. Facebook is a free service that makes it easy to share video and news with friends, family, and colleagues. Most editing tools can publish directly to Facebook and it supports all major video formats like QuickTime and Windows Media but converts all these formats to Flash Video (and HTML 5 for mobile versions) after you upload.

Here's how to post a video to Facebook:

1. Sign up for a Facebook account at If you’re already a member, just log in.

2. Near the top of the page, click the Add Photo / Video button.


3. Click the Upload Photo/Video button.

4. Enter a description into the field labeled “Say something about this.”

5. You can use the buttons along the bottom of the post to tag people in the video or add location information.Be sure to give details about your video to help the viewer understand the scene.


6. Click the “Choose File” button to select a video on your computer for posting. Facebook says it supports more than 30 different formats, but it prefers an HD MP4 file. I find using the YouTube preset works great for Facebook. The upload limit on your account will vary, but to increase it, just verify your account on your profile page.

7. Click Post to add the video.

8. A status window opens to show you the progress of the upload. Depending on duration and site traffic, it can take a few minutes for your video to process and become available online.

9. The video is added to your video collection and is posted to your timeline. You can use the standard sharing features of Facebook to tell your friends about it.
