I'm setting up a Facebook Business Page using Services Template. I have "Our Story" (photo + text) loaded on the About Page.  How can I "our Story" visible on the Home Page in the right column.  I see this on many Facebook pages and was expecting it to auto-magically appear.

To make your story public first tap on the add to story button on the home screen and post a photo or video. Next, you will view your own story and tap the three dots or " more" button in the top right. Open and Edit the story settings and change from friends to public

Have you looked at the "Templates" options under your Facebook Business settings? It is under "Templates and Tabs" on the left hand side. Your template may be different than others, putting "Our Story" in another location!

I don't have an Our Story under the cover photo.  Maybe this is because I added a Cover Video before tapping the add story button? Our strory appears correctly on the about page. I'm using the Services template. I did try the Business template with same results.

I believe the currently available choices for Business Type (Template) are: Services, Business, Venues, Non-Profit, Politicians, Restaurants & Cafes, Shopping, Video Page and Standard. I have tried Services and Business.

Maybe the video I uploaded to Our Story is too big. mp4 @ 636.3 MB.  I've searched and searched for some discussion on this, but nothing (same for showing more page tabs). This is my first go-around with Facebook, so maybe I just missed something very simple and basic.

Thanks for your time and interest in this.
