How to download videos from Facebook

Facebook is booming with video content: educational videos instructing you to garden and code addictive and ineffective 5-minute craft videos and those very clearly faked videos of people who catch their partners cheating on them, and aliens caught on film. If you have a desire for content, then that content is probably to be available on Facebook in video form.

If you'd like to share the video, copy the URL and send the link to a friend or DM it to them through the application.
