Have you heard about press and hold Facebook posts? No? You are missing out!
How to Make a Press and Hold Facebook Photo Post What you will need:
Step 1: Open into Live app and select hidden video or photos
You can select up to 30 photos to create a slideshow inside or reveal a video up to 30 seconds in length. I will show you how to create a slideshow. This is what people will see after they click and hold down on your post. They must press and hold in order for this to work – there is no autoplay. The app will automatically create a slideshow for you from the photos you pick, which is totally awesome. Can’t get any simpler than that! Just make sure they have all the same orientation and aspect ratio or they get cropped and you could be losing parts of your images. Click the arrow in the top right corner in the app to go to the next step.
Step 2: Select your post photo – this will be your interactive image
This is what everyone will see before they press and hold down on your post. I recommend using an image that has directions on it telling people exactly what to do. This is still so new that most people will have no idea what to do or expect! This is what your followers will see if they are viewing the post on a computer, but nothing will happen when they click it. This only works in the Facebook app on mobile.
