The option to upload HD video is available in the app’s settings menu. You will see it next to the option to upload pictures in HD as well.

It requires the users to give the “draw over other apps” permission to Facebook. You can use up and down arrow for easy notification view.
Report False News
Facebook has long been fighting the issue of fake news. It has taken widen rise especially during the presidential elections due to false stories and rumors all over. Mark Zuckerbrg, CEO of Facebook, even cleared this last month. He said, “The bottom line is: we take misinformation seriously. Our goal is to connect people with the stories they find most meaningful, and we know people want accurate information. We’ve been working on this problem for a long time and we take this responsibility seriously. We’ve made significant progress, but there is more work to be done.”
The new update adds an option of “It’s a false news story” to the ones that come up when someone click “I don’t think it should be on Facebook.” Here, users can report for false or hoax stories.
