Why did Facebook Story stick on Uploading?

There are some reasons for which the Facebook story is stuck on uploading, let’s dive in:

1. Takes A few Moments to Processing the Video

 Takes A few Moments to Processing the Video

Uploading time depends on the type and size of the content. For example when you post a photo on a story on Facebook or any other social media platform, it takes less time than a video. This is because of a very simple fact, that, the size of the photo is less than the video, this will take less time to process and upload.

Similarly, when you upload any video on the Facebook story, it takes a few minutes for processing before getting uploaded and displayed on the status. This is a general fact and is not at all related to any technical and internet network issue.

2. Longer File Size or Video Size is Longer

Longer File Size or Video Size is Longer

To upload a big-size file or a longer duration video, more than a few minutes are required. Since the size of the video is bigger than usual, the processor also has to make certain additional settings in the layout, quality, speed, etc, to display the exact video without any frame and picture defects.

Apart from this, internet connection also plays an important role. To upload a big/long size file and video, a minimum of 3 to 4 Mbps internet speed is required. If the internet speed is not good enough, then files and videos will take time to get uploaded on status.
Hence, there is nothing to worry about, if your video and longer size file are taking a little extra time to upload.

3. Facebook Verifies Video

Apart from the size of the video, and internet speed, there is one more very important factor that plays a role before a video is uploaded on Facebook, that is, ‘Facebook’s Auto Algorithm’. Facebook’s Auto Algorithm is set up specially to analyze and check the content of the video.

A video with the wrong message, disturbing pictures, or inflammatory thoughts is passed to get uploaded, neither on story/status nor on posts. These all things are checked by the Auto Algorithm before uploading the video and thus the video gets stuck for a few seconds before uploading.

4. Slow Internet Connection

Slow Internet Connection

No doubt that a slow internet connection is a cause for the Facebook story being stuck for uploading. Everything that runs over the support of the internet will affect its speed, similar is the scenario for uploading a story on Facebook.

It has been reported that to upload a high-definition standard video minimum of 3 to 4 Mbps internet speed is required. And, usually, the internet speed in mobile devices runs in kbps. Hence, uploading a video will take time on Facebook.
