With Facebook videos it is key to keep in mind how viewers are exposed to them. Facebook videos typically appear in users’ feeds and the videos autoplay without sound. To optimise your video ensure that the first 3 seconds of your video are eye-catching, engaging and can communicate without sound. As Facebook users scroll through their feeds, the video will autoplay only as they scroll past it. This gives you a short window to capture their attention.
