How to add Facebook profile video via Android and iOS apps; step by step process explained in brief

A Facebook video profile can be so much more interesting than an outright photo that is currently trending.

The world is moving towards video and moving away from photos and text. Jumping on this bandwagon is Facebook and its users are all set to benefit in a big way. Now Facebook users have the opportunity to be even more creative because Facebook profile video is here. Facebook is one of the most popular social media platforms in the world, as it allows users to connect with friends, family and potential employers, as well as businesses to sell their products directly to buyers, to connect with a potential partner (via Facebook Dating) or like-minded people (via Facebook Communities), discover engaging content including hours and hours of video content. Apart from that, Facebook also allows users to share their thoughts on the opinions or actions of their friends and family in creative ways (remember Facebook avatars?). The list does not end. The Facebook video profiles feature just adds to the benefits mentioned above, and in any case, it can tell a lot more than profile pictures.

For the uninitiated, profile videos are videos that appear at the top of your Facebook profiles instead of your Facebook profile pictures. Users can upload a video of up to seven seconds to use as profile videos. The only caveat is that profile videos can only be downloaded using the company’s iOS and Android apps. If you want to add video to your Facebook profile, here is a step by step guide for you.
