Now it's very easy to post videos on Facebook.

An advice in this re-post from Frances Flynn Thorsen -

Stop Posting

YouTube Videos To Facebook!

Here's How To Post Your Vids.

Original content by Frances Flynn Thorsen

Facebook is engaged in an all-out video war with YouTube. Facebook will give your videos much greater reach and exposure if you use the native Facebook video platform. 

Here's how to post your videos to Facebook and optimize them for the greatest organic reach.

  • Before uploading your video to a Facebook Business page (not a group or a personal profile, change the file to the KEYWORD you are targeting.
  • Upload a thumbnail image with KEYWORDS (1280x720 pixels).
  • Add 8 VIDEO TAGS using Facebook Audience Insights.
  • Write Facebook status text using KEYWORDS with links back to your website.
  • Enable Cross Posting in Advanced tab.

Great suggestions to optimize in Facebook, but YouTube is owned by Google, so isn't their SEO better with the exception of Facebook?  Also, if you hit a home run and your video goes viral, you can monetize it on YouTube, but I have never seen how Facebook does any revenue share with it's subscribers.

Praful I have not posted videos to Facebook, but I have posted them on AR.  It use to be difficult to post videos on AR, but they have made it much easier these days.

I am with you on SEO aspect of video Jim Paulson - and yes, Facebook does not allow you to monetize, too.

Good point.

George Souto - yes, now we can easily embed the video from YouTube.

(And today, I did see your post with the video in it - about CFPB. Surprisingly only 8 comments so far...)

Though I much prefer to watch those who post to youtube first, I do understand the advantages to the poster in posting directly to fb.

I like the other tips here too.

Thanks
