Facebook Video Covers are now available to users in Ireland!
Facebook recently confirmed that it was testing the ability for pages to upload videos to serve as cover images and finally the feature has been made available in Ireland! Their primary goal is to help businesses create more engaging experiences and drive more rich experiences for their target audiences.
In recent years Facebook has begun to really focus on video content, understanding that this is the way that most people prefer to consume content, with that number consistently growing. Other recent video features included Facebook live, profile videos, video ads and Facebook stories.
Facebook Video Covers aim to provide a similar functionality to the profile videos and given the current focus on video, the option will no doubt prove extremely popular!
Over the past few days they have been making Facebook Video Covers available to more users in Ireland which has added another layer for Irish businesses to enhance their Facebook Advertising capabilities.
You’ll know when you can upload videos when you see a message appear over your cover photo, where you usually click to change the photo, an upload video option will be available.
Do you have your Facebook Video Cover ready?
The video can be 20-90 seconds long and should be at least 820 x 312 pixels.
