As is the case with such videos, Facebook has randomly selected photos from your profile or News Feed and put them in a video. You can however edit the video by replacing any of the pre-selected photos. Hit the Edit button and move the slider option till you see the photos selected for each section of the video.
Below you will see all the photos you have shared on Facebook, and clicking on anyone from the list will replace it on the video. You can choose to replace all the pre-selected photos if you want. Once you are happy with the final video, simply hit the Share Video button, and it will be visible on your friends’ News Feeds.
