    Should I post the YouTube link to Facebook or should I upload the video natively? Or both?

    What do you do and why?

    For me it depends on the video. If it's something I want only Facebook fans to see I'll upload it there. Which is generally a clip I've been working where I ask others for opinions before the final product is released. If it's a weekly video (Gameplay or Review) I generally just keep it on Youtube. But for special videos I'll just upload them both.

    Guess that really doesn't help. >.> But choice of preference really.

    Posting a YouTube link to Facebook is almost pointless these days. Facebook buries the post so that few people see it, because they don't want users leaving Facebook to go to another website. They do, however, promote Facebook videos heavily. But if you are trying to build a YouTube channel, it does you no good to post to both Facebook and YouTube.

    I'm toying with the idea I've seen big channels do lately. Create your video and upload to YouTube as normal. Then create a 15-20 second "sizzle reel" of your new video, and include text in the video saying "To see the whole video, visit YouTube.com/mychannel." Then upload it to Facebook. That way your Facebook followers know you've released a new video, Facebook will heavily promote your post because it's native FB video, and you haven't given away the entire content of the video on a platform you cannot monetize (Facebook).

    Dude sick! I'm gonna go for it. I also think Facebook's tagging system and just all of that is so wonky. I just don't enjoy it, a lot of value there though.

    You can upload videos on facebook using yt2fb (.com) making the link look like a native facebook video this will save you from having to uploading it natively and you will get the views on Youtube

    From some experts that presented at Vidcon, only do native uploads. Never link to Yt.
    They also recommended re-edit your Yt video into a 30-60 sec one specially for Fb. That's the optimum video length on Zuckie's platform.
