Facebook Tips & Tools

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

    1. Ryan, I don’t think so actually. I can post as the page though (and I alternate) so I think that would be more likely to reach the fans. The ones I post as me might get my non-page fans though. That’s why I alternate. Thanks for asking.
