I just did a batch of 1920x1080 clips for FaceBook last week and got excellent results using the "Vimeo" 1080p preset for H.264. Just be sure that when viewing on Facebook to hit the HD button or it will look nasty using default viewing mode. In HD, I was able to change to full-screen mode on my 24" PC display and it looked amazing.

PERFECT!!!! That's EXACTLY what I needed. Thanks so much for taking the time to write --
Ok - finally finished another video and posted it - and it STILL looks awful until you choose the HD option. Some videos I've seen look great right on the timeline. Is there a secret to making that happen? I don't think most people will go to the trouble of hitting the HD button.
I see there's a 720P preset in media encoder...But no 1080 option. Does Facebook only support 720p?
Based on Facebook's help page, it only supports a max of 1280px wide, which is essentially what 720p is. Although you could go larger if you use a different aspect ratio.
