Most businesses, once they’ve published a Facebook Live video, think that’s the end of the story.

But it shouldn’t be.

In fact, repurposing your Facebook Live videos can be a really powerful way to drive more traffic to your site – and can widen the reach and impact of your video content.

We’re going to cover ways to repurpose your content in a later blog post – but this article covers the first step: how to download Facebook Live videos.

Here’s how:

1. Go to your Page on a Desktop / Laptop browser

Get Facebook loaded up in a desktop browser (not your mobile app), and navigate to your Page.

2. Click on: Publishing Tools and then Video Library

This will open up a list of all the video content you’ve posted on the page, along with an icon to show which of the videos were originally posted as Live content.
