Facebook is one of the largest social media sites and it has recently emerged as the biggest video sites. Facebook is strongly competing with YouTube and is also being used for advertisement more than before. Yet there’s a lot of difference in YouTube and Facebook. Facebook has features for uploading and sharing videos, but there isn’t any dedicated button for downloading videos like YouTube. Sometimes while scrolling news feed, we come across funny memes or videos that we want to share with friends and download for watching it later, but to save them we have to do a lot. Here is how to download or save videos from Facebook on Any device easily.
