How to Make & Set Facebook Profile Video on your iPhone

A new profile video is a way to receive hundreds of likes from your friends and family. Create your profile video by following some easy steps, and set the video on your profile page.

One of the primary reasons of Facebook’s ever growing popularity is its ability to adapt to changing trends. Youth want to share things; they want to share stories, jokes, and memories; when it comes to memories, photos and videos rule the roost.

Profile picture is something that current generation doesn’t want to compromise on. They carefully choose from perhaps hundreds of pictures to set one as their profile picture.

Now, you will be asked to select a Thumbnail from the video. You can use the slider to choose the exact gesture in the video to use as thumbnail; this will appear when your profile video is unavailable.

When you reach a spot in the video you like to use as your thumbnail image, leave the square there and tap on Save. That selected thumbnail image will appear in Facebook’s news feed. Your Facebook friends can view your profile video when they visit your profile page either on mobile or desktop versions of Facebook.

Enjoy watching your profile video by tapping on your profile icon.
