Did you know you can now use video in place of a static cover image for your Facebook Company/Fan page? This is a great way to quickly tell visitors about your business or even special offers!

Consumers are watching video on Facebook, they’re engaging with it, and it’s actually getting them to take action. So why not incorporate more of it into your marketing efforts, right at the top of your Facebook page?

First, you’ll need to create a video to upload as your Facebook cover video. You may have noticed that Facebook cover videos are shorter and wider than typical Facebook videos.

Videos will be cropped to 820 x 462 pixels. For this reason, it’s important to keep any important images and text centralized so they won’t get cut out. The mobile crop is slightly different and will crop less of your video, but once you’ve uploaded it, double-check to make sure it looks okay on mobile.

The size is 820px X 462px and it needs to be between 20 – 90 secs long. The video resolution must be 1080p. MP4 format.
