It’s quite easy to post any photo or video on Facebook from your iOS device. However, when any photo or video is uploaded to Facebook from iPhone or iPad, it is converted to low-resolution by default.
Facebook might have implemented this system to minimize bandwidth usage, though HD photos are comparatively lower in size.
Videos in HD mode can sometimes be in GBs, depending on the length of the video. Almost all of us have capped data plan these days, and so to upload something in GB, might end up in mortgaging a villa to pay the data plan bill. So be sure you are on a Wi-Fi network when you are trying to upload photos or videos in HD on Facebook.
