Editing Your Facebook Story

Click on it! It’s pretty straightforward from this point. Well, adding the text to your story is straightforward. Adding the cover photo is easy.

The preview looked good however when clicked it was cropped obscurely. Took us a bit of time to fathom out! We hope that this may save you time when creating your story.

Back to the story editing, now you can add your cover image…
