How to Edit and Tag Your Facebook Videos
When you upload a video to share with your Facebook friends, you can tag and edit it, much as you can your Facebook photos. You can’t do fancy editing that editing software like Final Cut Pro might do. Rather, you're editing how these items are displayed and seen by your friends.
To get to the Edit Video screen, click the blue title of the Video and then look beneath it for a list of action links. Click the Edit This Video link. This brings you to the Edit Video page.
The Edit Video screen has several fields to fill out; most of these are optional:
In This Video: This option is similar to tagging a photo or a note. Simply start typing the names of all the friends who are in the video and then select the correct friends from the list that displays. Your friends are notified that they’ve been tagged in a video and can remove the tag if they decide they don’t want to be forever remembered as The one who got pied in the face.
Title: Name your video. You can be artsy and name it something like Boston Cream Meets a Bitter End or something descriptive like Pie in the Face. If you don’t choose a title, the video is automatically titled with the timestamp of when you recorded or uploaded it.
Description: This field is for you to describe what’s happening in your video, although frequently videos speak for themselves.
Privacy: Your privacy options for videos are on a per-video basis. Thus, you can choose that everyone sees Pie in the Face, but only certain friends (with strong stomachs) see Pie-eating Contest.
Thumbnail: On the right side of the Edit Video page is a thumbnail or a still from the video. This thumbnail is what displays to friends in the preview of the video they see before clicking Play. You can change the thumbnail by clicking the arrows to see other possible thumbnails.
Click Save when you’re done filling out these fields.
