How to Change Thumbnails for Facebook Videos

Sometimes the thumbnail that Facebook chooses for your video can be a bit unflattering. If you don’t like your face you can change the thumbnail automatically selected by Facebook.

Unlike YouTube, you cannot upload a custom thumbnail for your video (as far as I know) but you do have more choices that are automatically generated. Here are the basic steps for changing a thumbnail on your Facebook videos:

1. Upload your video.
2. Once your video has been processed go to the “Vidoes” section of your Facebook page.
3. Hover over the video and then click the little edit icon.
4. Along with descriptive information about your video you’ll be presented with a carousel of thumbnails.
5. Choose the best one and click “Save”. You’re done.

Hope this helps!

Giving Back to Your Community – 10 the Podcast

What does it take to be a good member of a community? How often should you give back? How much should you take from a community? What do you do with people that only take and don’t give back?

I try to answer these questions. I probably fail and sound like an idiot.
