However, you need to move from your android phone or the laptop towards the iPhone and would have to open your application of Facebook from there. After you log in to your profile, you need to open the main page of your profile. In a similar way of applying the profile picture, you need to tap on the current profile picture of yours.

How to add Facebook Profile Video?
Making a new video is easy. All you need to do is to keep on pressing the capture button for seven seconds and you will be able to record a new video. This video can be edited but you need to ensure that it is just seven second long. If the video is longer than the specified duration, you will have to edit it and cut it shorter to make it of the appropriate length. After you are done with this process, you will be able to see your video on the place you were used to of watching your old profile picture.
The whole process:
People who are friends with you on Facebook will get a notification that you have uploaded a new profile video. This notification will surely get them excited and they would love to check it out. Simply taping on the video will let them open it and they will be able to view the complete video. The people who would see your video will also be able to comment on it. Moreover, if you want to keep your video safe from the random people, you can do that by changing the privacy setting of your video. Changing it from public to friends will surely help you in staying miles away from the creepy stalkers.
