It takes 4 easy steps to add a featured video to your page:

1. Go to Page and Click "More"


2. Click "Videos"


3. Click "Add Featured Video"


4. Choose Video to Feature


Click "Add Featured Video" when your selection is complete.


When finished, your page should look something like this:


From now on, when you click "Videos" (as shown in step #2), a pencil button will display these options:

  • Change Featured Video
  • Edit Description
  • Don't Show a Featured Video


It's easy to load Facebook featured videos & this is an awesome change for page managers!

Great job, Facebook! I hope you win the war.
