How To Make Reels On Facebook

Recently, Facebook introduced Reels, a new way to create and share short, entertaining videos on Facebook. If you’re familiar with Instagram Reels, this feature will seem very similar. If you’re a content creator, a marketer, or simply someone who loves to share fun moments with friends and family, this guide will take you through the step-by-step process of making reels on Facebook.

Step 1: Open Facebook App

The first thing you need to do is open your Facebook app. Make sure your app is updated to the latest version so you can access the Reels feature. If you’ve not updated your app, you can do this by going to your device’s app store (Google Play Store for Android, App Store for iOS).

Step 2: Access Your Facebook Camera

Next, tap on the camera icon, usually located on the top left corner of your Facebook app. This will open your camera.

Step 3: Scroll to Reels

In your Facebook camera, you’ll see different modes (Normal, Video, Text, and Reels). Scroll to Reels to start creating your video.

Step 4: Create Your Reel

Now comes the fun part – creating your reel. You’ll see different editing tools on the left side of your screen. Here’s a quick rundown of what each tool does:

  • Audio: Choose a song from the Facebook music library
  • Speed: Speed up or slow down part of the video or audio
  • Effects: Apply various effects to your video
  • Timer: Set a timer to record any of your clips hands-free

Once you’ve made your selection, press and hold the capture button to start recording your reel. You can release the button to stop recording. Feel free to add more clips to your reel by repeating this process.

Step 5: Share Your Reel

Once you’re happy with your reel, it’s time to share it with the world. Tap the Next button and you’ll be taken to the share screen. Here, you can add a caption, tags, and choose where to share your reel (Feed, Stories, Group, etc.). When you’re ready, tap the Share button. Congratulations, you’ve just created and shared your very first Facebook Reel!


Facebook Reels is a great way to share engaging, short-form content with your friends, family, and followers. We hope this guide has helped you understand how to create your own reels. Now it’s time to unleash your creativity and make some amazing Facebook Reels!
