Facebook Ups it Video Sharing Game

By Kate Knibbs on at

Facebook is gunning hard for YouTube with its new embeddable video feature, which lets people take videos posted to Facebook and put them on other sites.

Before, if you decided to put a video on Facebook and wanted to share it elsewhere you basically had to re-upload it to another site or simply link back to your Facebook post, so this tool signals how serious Facebook is about becoming a video hub.

I cannot fully support this new feature knowing that it will primarily make Ice Bucket Challenges easier to share across the internet.
