In order to increase the interaction between the world’s two largest social and video sharing networks, YouTube and Facebook have allowed users to share each other’s activities. Both YouTube and Facebook have built-in support features. You should also share some interesting and useful photos and videos on your timeline to avoid boring full-text status. Youtube is the most popular video sharing website in the world. With a treasure of videos, you can search for useful and funny content. With this sharing feature of both Facebook and YouTube, users can save a lot of videos and Facebook does not have to face the overhead of managing millions of videos that could be posted on its servers.

While using an Android phone, you can share any YouTube video on your timeline, Facebook pages, and Facebook groups by copying the share link of the video and pasting it into Facebook. The video you share will appear on the News Feed of your friends and people who follow you. Of course, you can see a YouTube video on your News Feed if you follow someone sharing it.

On the other hand, while using an Android phone to view YouTube videos, every video has a share icon available at the top. This icon can be used to share the selected video on your Facebook profile. Now, we are going to the details.
