Adding YouTube Videos to your Facebook Page

This method will create a new tab on your Facebook Page displaying the YouTube videos of your choice – these can be from your own YouTube account, or from others.

Step 1: You will need a YouTube account

We will be using the Favourites of this account to specify what videos to be pulled in.  This must be an account that:

  • does not already use favourites for some other purpose (i.e. personal sharing), and
  • does not act as a public-facing/marketing profile – as the videos you favourite will show up in the YouTube newsfeed of this account.

Step 2: Add some favourites.

Go to www.youtube.com/iveybusiness and browse the available videos. Mark the ones that you would like to feature on your Facebook page as favourites.
