Facebook Profile Cover Video! Yep, You Can Now Rock It.




Like most of you, I have always wanted to use a video on my Facebook profile cover. Unfortunately, this option has only been available to Facebook pages.

Note that Facebook added the possibility to add 360-degree photos straight from the Facebook app with no specialized cameras or tools.


Today while playing with my profile, I discovered that I could add a video to my Facebook profile cover.

I still can’t believe it, but it is so real.

Oh before I forget, these Facebook profile cover videos are generic.

  • Maybe even live stream and connect to your profile cover!


Dream dream! I guess it´s not too bad to dream and hope for the best.

Sounds ridiculous? I don’t think so! I think we might move towards that point.
