Why Can’t I Create A Carousel Post On Facebook

✎ Key Takes:

» You can create a carousel post on Facebook by navigating to the Business Manager page, clicking on ‘Create a post,’ and selecting the carousel type. Alternatively, access the Ads Manager to create campaign ads if the option isn’t visible on the business page.
» Also, use clear and engaging photos or videos when adding content to the carousel, along with a relevant link. Ensure the visibility of the carousel option by managing it through the Business Manager tool on the Facebook Ads Manager account.

Why Can’t I Create A Carousel Post On Facebook:

These are the reasons for why you can’t create a carousel post on Facebook:

1. Not using the Facebook Business page

Facebook Carousel posts are beneficial for businesses because they increase your posts’ engagement rate.

If you want to create a carousel post on Facebook, then you can not do it using a regular Facebook account; you need a Facebook Business page where you can do it.  

2. Use a Facebook Ads Manager account

A user can’t get the carousel post option from a Facebook page. You need a Facebook Ads Manager account to create a carousel post with videos or images.

It attracts users, so for the growth of a business, business managers always want to use this method, so they need a Facebook Ads Manager account.

3. Can’t Find the page Posts

To create a carousel post and publish it, you need Facebook’s Page posts to feature; if you can not find the Page posts feature, you can not make a carousel post.

You can check if you see the list by scrolling it to the bottom; if it is not there, that means after the update, they either change the position or remove the feature.

4. Can’t create regular carousel posts anymore

After getting all the features and having a business ads manager Facebook account, there are specific criteria that you need to reach to create a Facebook Carousel post.

Facebook Carousel posts do not allow low-resolution pictures, so if you have this type of picture, you must convert it to a High-Resolution Image and Publish It.

Facebook Carousel Post Not Working:

This issue is seen on the Facebook platform when a carousel post is not working as expected.

This means that when you create a carousel post, it’s not functioning properly, such as not displaying multiple images or slides as intended.

If you want, you can also try deleting the carousel post and creating a new one to see if the issue persists.
