Why is my feed showing no thumbnail for Facebook videos and reels?

On the Facebook hashtag feed widget, the videos or reels will sometimes display a View content on Facebook button. This usually means that these videos or reels are not embeddable on Facebook or are in private which is why there are no video thumbnails shown.

If you're planning to create a Facebook Hashtag feed widget, make sure your Facebook Privacy settings of your posts are set to public and they are embeddable. If they're not, your Facebook videos or reels will show a View content on Facebook because the thumbnails unavailable due to the privacy settings. Adjusting your privacy settings to public will fix this issue and let your Facebook videos or reels be displayed smoothly on your Facebook hashtag feed widget.
