How to Add a YouTube Video to Facebook

In this short video I’ll show you how to add a video to Facebook.

Here are the basic steps:

  • Find the video in YouTube
  • Click “share” at the bottom of the video
  • Copy the link that you see there
  • Go to Facebook – to your profile or a page
  • Add the link to the update. Facebook should find the video after a couple of seconds
  • Feel free to describe the video or add a link to a blog post or other related content
  • Here’s a link to my video post in Facebook so you can see an example
