Yes, you guessed that right. You can now play tricks with your audience and move the cover images!
Facebook confirmed that it is now testing the video cover for pages. This is the next big thing to join the video features family provided by Facebook; video profile images, Facebook live, video ads, Facebook stories and more.
Here’s Facebook’s Official Statement confirming the test:
“We recently started testing the ability on the desktop to upload a video as the Page cover. Once a cover video has been created, the video will render when people visit the Page.
By making the cover video available, we want to help you create more engaging interaction and drive more rich experience for your audience by letting you spotlight your creative content in one of the most prominent space: your Page cover.
The feature is still in early testing, but we expect to roll it out more widely soon. We appreciate your patience and support while we improve on this feature to bring cover video available to you soon.”
Business Pages First
This feature is a major breakthrough in how business pages look like to their audience. As reported by Social Pro Daily by a spokesman via email:
We’re always looking for ways to help businesses create more engaging experiences and drive more rich experiences for their audiences. To do this, we’re testing the ability for pages to upload a cover video as the page cover.
