How to Create and Share Facebook Friends Day Video

Krishanu Dutta

We all love our friends. Some help us through tough times, some make us laugh at silly little things, some we keep around just because they make us happy. Facebook understands how friends feel about each other and, hence, has introduced a brand new feature — Happy Friends Day!

With this feature, you can edit and create a short slideshow clip that features your favorite friends getting awards based on how many times you've liked their posts, how many music pages both of you like or how many photos you two are tagged in. 

Facebook has created this new feature to mark the beginning of the season of love ahead of the Valentine's Week. You can scroll down the page to find a collection of some heartwarming videos on friends who found a new meaning in life through friendship.

Step 3.

You'll then land on the page where all the work gets done. You'll first be shown a preview of your personal Friends Day video with random photographs collected using Facebook's own algorithm.

You can swipe to the right by hitting the Right button and it'll show you the individual cards featuring your friend and the award he or she is getting.

Step 4.

You can also customize the video and create awards for the friends that do not get picked up by Facebook. Swipe right to find the Create card.

Tap the Create button at the bottom of the card and you'll see a search box appear on the screen. Type your friend's name and select. Choose the award – Music Buddy, Photo Op Friend, Makes Any Time a Good Time, Always Has My Back or Big-Hearted – and give it out to your favorite human.
