How to Save Facebook Videos to Computer (Windows 10), iPhone, Android, MP4, etc.?

- "My boyfriend has an iPhone and whenever a friend posts a funny video, he will share it to me via Facebook messenger. But with no luck and with no reason, I just cannot seem to share any video posts from friends on Facebook to my friends messenger. So I think of saving Facebook videos to my phone and sharing with friends through other platform. Is there any way to save videos from Facebook easily?"

Before we get to how to save Facebook videos to iPhone, PC or Android phone, a quick word on the introduction:

Facebook is an American online social media and social networking service that is accessible through desktops, laptops, smartphones and tablets. The video feature on Facebook has been swept all over the world – let's say, millions of users use Facebook to communicate and swap videos every day.

The company is more and more emphasizing photo and video experience. In 2017, Facebook announced the beta launch of Facebook Spaces such that users can access a curated selection of 360-degree videos using their avatar in a virtual and shared space. Also, Facebook added a new feature called "Messenger Day" to allow users to share photos and videos in a story-format with all their friends. But the videos that have been shared would disappear after 24 hours.

Similar with YouTube and Twitter, Facebook also does NOT offer any tool or feature for saving videos from Facebook pages directly. That's to say, to save Facebook videos is not as easy as just tapping and saving within the app.

But if you are using a computer, things will go much easier to save any videos from Facebook app. See how to:
