It would be wrong to call Facebook as one of the most used social networks of all time because it's by far the most used besides the video-hosting platform YouTube. And there's a correlation because you can host videos on Facebook too. Wouldn't it be nice to have a Facebook Video Downloader save your favorite videos from the platform?
This is the point where are our article is heading, as today, we are going to explain how you can download Facebook videos for free with our brand-new Facebook Video Downloader without having to download any apps, giving your password, or compromising on your account's security in overall.
As we mentioned above, Facebook is the largest social media ever we have seen to this day besides YouTube, with more than 2.4 billion monthly users around the globe. That means there will be a lot of videos you're going to stumble on Facebook.
Well, that's something delightful for the internet community, and we highly support it. You can find a video for everything, and you can watch them on HD, 1080p resolutions.
Why You Can't Download Videos from Facebook
However, on Facebook, there is no official way for users to download their favorite videos to their devices, just like YouTube and other social media platforms. We think that this is a thing because social media networks don't want you to leave the app and watch the videos on your mobile devices or computers.
And they have a reason to do that. As we know, all social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter rely on ad revenue to support their enterprises. Therefore, of course, they don't want you to leave the platform and enjoy the video on your own.
It's all about the engagement, as you may guess. Advertisers pay cost-per-click to social media platforms, and if everyone downloads their videos and the usage time drops, the money the platforms are making will be reduced too. In that case, it's understandable for Facebook to give no download options for videos.
Also, considering that you can cause copyright infringements on the platform by distributing the video that you downloaded for-profit purposes, the reasons to disable any downloading feature on Facebook multiplies, and it becomes inevitable.
