Facebook Timeline: How to change the thumbnail of a Facebook video

Facebook Timeline: How to change the thumbnail of a Facebook video

I decided to do this tutorial because as I was doing research on how to change the thumbnail of a facebook video for one of my clients, I couldn’t find any tutorials that showed how to change the thumbnail for accounts using Facebook Timeline. It is actually really simple, but without these directions, it’s hard to find the correct screen to edit the thumbnail.

Step 1: Click on the NAME of your video

You can do this step from multiple screens. If the video is recent, you can just click the name of the video from your timeline. If you want to edit an older video, you have to go to your photo section, click on video, and then click on the name of the video you want to edit. If you click on the thumbnail itself, you will get an option to edit, but the option to change the thumbnail of a facebook video will not be on the screen. Make sure to click the NAME of the video, not the thumbnail.

  1. I can’t see the name of any of my videos. If I go to the photo section, only photos are there and not any pics of the videos. Help, please. : ) I sure appreciate it!
    God bless,

    P.S. Here’s my FB page so you can see what I mean. The thumbnail for my videos is horrible.

    I couldn’t figure this out, FB can be pretty cryptic.
    Perfectly simple, less than a minute after finding your steps.
