Copy that link of the video and paste it on any online platform which provides the service of a YouTube to Facebook converter. Once you paste the link on the page, wait for a minute or so. You will get a new link to the converted video which is compatible with Facebook’s guidelines. Paste that new link on your social media platform and ask people to share it.

This thumbnail will be the true representative of your video and will give people an idea what your video is about before they click on it.
Whenever a Facebook user clicks on your video link, they will be automatically guided to your YouTube channel where they can view the entire video. This will foster your views on YouTube and will benefit your brand.
