Create a Facebook Your Business Video in 5 minutes or Less

[UPDATE] Unfortunately this feature is no longer available within Facebook. Here’s what they say: The opportunity to create Your Business Story has now ended. Thank you to all the businesses that participated. I am most disappointed that my videos also all disappeared.

Have you created your Facebook Your Business Story video yet?

This new feature was just released by Facebook and allows you to make a quick showcase video of for your business page.
