Today I’m going to talk about how to change a Facebook video thumbnail. I’ll walk you through how to change video thumbnails on your personal profile and how to make those changes in a group or a Facebook page.
Personal Facebook Profile
- On your personal profile, go to the More tab directly under your Facebook cover photo.
- Select Videos and go to Your Videos.
- Hover over the video you want to edit and hit the pencil icon that pops up.
- Select Edit this video.
- In this dialog box, you can change the title of your video.
- You will also be able to choose from 10 different thumbnail options taken directly from the video.
- Click Save and your video thumbnail should reflect those changes.
Facebook Page or Group
- Select videos from the left-hand menu.
- Scroll down to All Videos and select the video you want to edit.
- Go to the 3 dots at the bottom right of the page and go to Edit Videos.
- In this box you can select the thumbnail picture and make changes.
- You can select from auto-generated thumbnails or upload your own custom image. You can even scroll through the video frames and choose an exact video frame to use as the thumbnail.
