Using Videos on Social Media: Facebook

This post is 396 words —a 2 minute read.

Posting your videos to your social media platforms is a great way to engage and build your base. Facebook has become increasingly video friendly as of late, with auto-playing videos and longer upload lengths allowed than YouTube. Let’s talk about some tips for maximizing the potential of your videos on Facebook.

Uploading via Facebook

First of all, even if you don’t upload through Facebook, Facebook will embed the YouTube player in the post, making it easy to watch the video without having to leave the site. However, if you choose to upload your video through Facebook, you get a few bonus options that you don’t have with YouTube. Namely, Facebook supports more file formats than YouTube and allows you to upload longer videos.


In addition to conventional likes which help a post with engagement, Facebook video offers a unique opportunity for you to get more likes for your page. You can embed a like button in the video itself that is actually a like button for your page, not the video. This makes it even easier for viewers to like your page and for you to engage with them.

Video Landing Pages

One of the coolest things you can do with video on Facebook is build your own video landing page. When a Facebook user clicks your page, you can automatically direct them to this page which features a video that you can use to introduce the user to your company. This serves as a great entry point to your brand and a great opportunity to educate and inform new members of your base.
