Here are some tips for sharing videos on Facebook:

  • Choose the right format. Facebook supports a variety of video formats, including MP4, MOV, and AVI. However, MP4 is the most recommended format for Facebook videos.
  • Keep your videos short and sweet. Facebook recommends that videos be no longer than 5 minutes long. If your video is longer than 5 minutes, you can consider splitting it up into multiple videos or creating a shorter highlight reel.
  • Use a catchy thumbnail. Your video’s thumbnail is the first thing people will see, so make sure it’s eye-catching and relevant to your video content.
  • Write a descriptive caption. Your caption should give people a good idea of what your video is about and why they should watch it.

Here are some additional tips for getting the most out of sharing videos on Facebook:

  • Share your videos at the right time. According to Facebook, the best times to share videos are on Tuesdays and Wednesdays between 1pm and 3pm EST.
  • Promote your videos. Share your videos on other social media platforms, in your email newsletter, and on your website. You can also run Facebook ads to promote your videos to a wider audience.
  • Interact with your viewers. Respond to comments and questions on your videos. You can also ask your viewers questions to encourage engagement.

By following these tips, you can share videos on Facebook that are informative, engaging, and likely to reach a wide audience.
