Facebook, is definitely one of the best creation of this decade. Today, when we find it so hard to give time to friends, Facebook has made it possible to keep in touch and share lots with them. It has brought people a lot closer and has built greater relationships. Facebook includes hell lots of features, no wonder someday even if you can touch your friends on it – not joking.
Every one is familiar of sending text messages on Facebook but there are other options on it too. Video messages are most exiting ones among them. It is said that with text all you can communicate is just 40 percent , an effective and complete communication can be done only by including your gestures along with the text. This can be possible only with a Video message where you communicate all that you want to your friends with ease.
The Facebook Video emails show up as a thread in each email exchange — making it easy to scroll down a series of video emails or even play several at the same time. You can record a video up to 15 minutes — that’s an eternity!
Well, today you will learn of effectively using Video messages on Facebook. At the end of this tutorial you will be all set to send a video message with ease.
What are the basic Requirements?
You’ll have to have a webcam hooked up to your computer or laptop. It’s a must thing.
Steps to easily send a Video Message on Facebook
1>> In Facebook , click on Inbox and then Compose Message (or, if already viewing a message, just scroll down to the Reply box).
2>> Click on Record Video just below the message / reply box.
3>> If prompted, give permission for the website to turn on your webcam.
4>> A Record video box will appear. When you’re ready to be recorded, click on the red circle button.
5>> Happily record your video message now. When done, click on the blue square button.
6>> You now have a choice of previewing your video, cancelling, or attaching your video. If you’re satisfied, click on Attach.
7>> Now, this is the step many people may overlook! You’re brought back to the message compose window. You’ll have the option of typing something or not, and then click on Send to send the video email.
8>> The video email will then be sent! If more video emails are sent and received to/from the same recipient, then they will be threaded as shown below. This is a cool feature that will make the job still easy for you.
Doing this for wall posts posts is very similar — just click on Record Video, attach it, and then post / send it.
What about Video Controls?
When viewing videos, all you need to do is to click on the blue arrow on the video window, and it will play right there. If you hover your mouse over the playing video, you’ll see buttons to pause it, a bar where you can drag the video timing back or forth, and volume controls.
Have lots of fun! Just don’t record anything you don’t want the public and your mom to know (or even see) … !!
