Posting a YouTube video to your company's Facebook page takes just a few seconds and is a great way to draw attention from your followers. Since Facebook natively supports embedding YouTube videos on pages, you do not need to use the embedding code that YouTube provides. However, you cannot share directly from the YouTube page using the "Share" button. Instead, you need to post the link to the video from your Facebook page.

Navigate to the video you want to share on your Facebook page.

Click "Share" and copy the "Share this video" link.

Navigate to Facebook and switch to using Facebook as your business page if you are logged in to your personal account.

Paste the YouTube link in the status update box and click "Post." You can also add additional text if you want to make a comment about the video. Facebook fans who see the update will be able to play the embedded YouTube video directly from their news feed.
