How to Delete Videos on Facebook: An In-Depth Guide for Entrepreneurs

Having outdated or irrelevant videos on your business Facebook page can clutter your profile and present an unprofessional brand image. As a consultant who assists entrepreneurs with social media strategy, I recommend cleaning up your video content regularly.

Here is a comprehensive, step-by-step guide on how to delete videos on Facebook, along with expert tips to refine your video presence.

Why You Should Delete Old Facebook Videos

Over 75% of people watch more than an hour of social media video per week [1]. With video dominating platforms like Facebook, maintaining fresh, engaging content is essential.

As a small business owner, you should delete videos that:

  • Have outdated information or promotions
  • Feature products/services you no longer offer
  • Have very low view counts or engagement
  • Present an amateurish brand image

Regularly pruning your video library helps present a polished, professional profile that builds trust with viewers. Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins advises entrepreneurs: "Spend time cleaning up your digital profiles – remove old, irrelevant content" [2].

How to Delete a Single Facebook Video

Deleting a single video on Facebook only takes a few clicks:

  1. Go to your Facebook page and click the Photos/Videos tab.
  2. Click the Videos tab to access your library.
  3. Hover over the video you want to delete and click the Options button (the three dots).
  4. Select Delete Video.
  5. Click Delete in the confirmation box.

The video will be immediately removed from your Facebook account and profile.

How to Delete Multiple Facebook Videos

You can mass delete multiple videos at once:

  1. In your video library, check the box next to each video you want to remove.
  2. Click the More button at the top and select Delete Videos.
  3. Click Delete to confirm.

This allows you to quickly remove a batch of videos.

Finding and Deleting Videos You‘re Tagged In

If someone has tagged you in an irrelevant or embarrassing video:

  1. Go to your Activity Log and filter for "Posts You‘re Tagged In."
  2. Click the video and select Remove Tag.
  3. Confirm by clicking Remove Tag.

You can also remove the tag directly from the video post. This will untag you while keeping the video on Facebook.

Considerations When Deleting Facebook Videos

  • Deleted videos cannot be recovered – so be certain before removing!
  • Others may still have copies of videos they‘ve shared or downloaded.
  • You can only delete videos uploaded by your page or profile.
  • Editing a video won‘t delete it – use this if you want to modify content.

Maintain a Professional Video Presence

As a consultant who works with many entrepreneurs on social media best practices, I recommend:

  • Auditing your video content quarterly and removing outdated or irrelevant videos.
  • Planning a consistent schedule for new video content to keep your library fresh.
  • Analyzing video metrics regularly – consider removing videos with very low engagement.
