How to Connect YouTube With Facebook


YouTube, a Google-owned streaming media platform, allows you not only to view millions of streamed videos on its site but also allows you to dynamically interact with the content that you view. You can leave comments on videos that enable the comment feature, like or dislike videos, mark them as favorites, subscribe to other YouTube channels and upload your own content. If you're an avid Facebook user as well, YouTube allows you to connect your account to your Facebook and automatically share your YouTube's activity as Facebook status updates.

  • Visit and click the "Sign In" link in the upper right corner.

  • Sign in with the Google account associated with your YouTube account.

  • Click the button with your YouTube username in the upper right corner, then select "Account" from the drop-down dialog box that appears.

  • Click the "Activity Sharing" tab on the left column.

  • Click the "Connect Accounts" link next to "Facebook" in the Activity Sharing settings.

  • Click the blue "Allow" button in the pop-up window that appears. This allows your YouTube account to access and post to your Facebook account. The pop-up window automatically closes when the service has finished syncing your two accounts.

  • Check the boxes next to the types of activities on YouTube that you'd like to share on your Facebook status updates. You can share whenever you like, upload, comment on or favorite a video, or when you subscribe to another user's YouTube channel.

  • Click the "Save Changes" button in the Activity Sharing settings screen to save your Facebook account information on YouTube.

Tips & Warnings

  • To disable or modify your connection from YouTube to Facebook, visit the Activity Sharing settings page again and click "Disconnect Accounts" next to "Facebook."
  • To disable auto-sharing but to keep the two accounts connected, which allows you to manually share individual activities to your Facebook from YouTube, click "Disable Auto Share" instead.
  • You can also connect your Twitter, Orkut, Google Reader and MySpace accounts to your YouTube activity feed from the same Activity Sharing dashboards.
