The Our Story section located prominently on the right side of your Facebook Business Page (when viewing on desktop), just beneath your cover photo, is a new section added to Facebook Business Pages that allows Page Owners the opportunity to share another photo plus a more personal glimpse into their business. Before you’ve set up your Story, Facebook auto-inserts an image that has been uploaded to your Page plus the beginning of the text included in your Long Description area as a placeholder.

If you’ve ever used Facebook Notes, the Our Story edit view will look very familiar to you. In this view, you can select a new photo to upload, give your “Our Story” a new title, and add/edit new text.

The recommended dimensions for a Facebook Note cover image are: 1200 x 445 pixels.

Edit your Facebook Story

As you start adding or editing text, you’ll see that you have some basic word processing features like H1, H2, bullets, quote block, HTML editing, and adding an image or link.

When you have it looking how you want, click the blue Publish button at the bottom right corner.

Completed Facebook Story

Once you’ve published your Facebook Story, you’ll see that the new Our Story section replaces the text that used to be in the Long Description area of your Business Page. Other sections such as About and Company Overview remain the same.

You can edit your Story or change the image at any time.

If you’ve already written about your business’ story on your website or blog, you might find it easiest to copy and paste some of the text you already have on your website, into this section.
