Facebook is now considered a worldwide social media platform. Its daily active users are already in the 1.52 billion count which is 20% of the world population. The figure alone is more than the population of the United States so it’s safe to say that social media is a global phenomenon.
When you find a video on Facebook that you want to re-upload somewhere else or you want to save it on your Android phone, you would need to download it from Facebook. Downloading a video from Facebook isn’t as simple as you may imagine – you would need to download it using an online downloader.

Pro tip: you can do this for videos that are published for a public audience. This means that the video or video post must have a globe icon under the right portion of the poster’s name.
If the video post has a privacy setting set, you may be unsuccessful in attempting to download such videos.
