Sometimes you want to share a video you found on Facebook, but your contacts aren’t able to see it, perhaps because they are not friends with the video owner, or maybe they don’t have a Facebook account.

The best way to show them the video, in this case, is by manually sending it to them via WhatsApp. Here’s how to share Facebook video on WhatsApp using Android, iPhone, and PC.

That’s How To Share Facebook Video On WhatsApp

So, what’d you think?

Honestly, Facebook is often considered an abandoned social media app by the younger generation, but it’s still a source of some hilarious as well as thought-provoking videos. Even if you aren’t on the platform, you can still appreciate some of its more quality content. 

There are a number of ways to download and share Facebook videos to WhatsApp, but I found these to be the easiest, and they’re free too. Even Video Proc, which has a paid option, is honestly one of the best downloaders out there because you can use it to edit and convert your video too. 

If you’re curious, I’ve also got a great guide on sharing Instagram photos on WhatsApp as well as how to update your WhatsApp status.
