Facebook recently began rolling out Cover Videos, which allows you to add a 20-90 second video as your cover photo. (The optimal cover video should be at least 820 x 312 pixels.) Testing began publicly in April when the Netflix show Narcos debuted their cover video, featuring a short clip of money scrolling across the top.
Since then, Facebook has continued the process of adding cover videos to pages as their testing progresses. While not all pages are optimized for cover videos, approximately half of our pages have cover video capabilities and we expect the rest will follow shortly!
We’ve compiled some of the best cover videos on Facebook to show the different ways companies are utilizing cover videos. From inspirational videos to DIY’s to entertainment, these companies are doing great things with their cover videos.
We hope this variety of example cover videos will provide you with your own Facebook cover video inspiration! (Last updated 7/10/17)
