Downloading Facebook videos is found  as an impossible or difficult task by most of the users. But actually it's not that hard.

However there are no download options in the Facebook app or website yet.

Although  there is a "save video " option in the Facebook app,it is just cloud download,that is,you are not saving those videos in to your device.(just like the offline feature in Youtube, you will be able to watch those videos offline)


Most of the android users might be using Facebook lite app to download Facebook videos since it automatically downloads the particular videos before you could watch them.
