If you want to post video to Facebook, you need to obtain a personalized upload email address. You use that address to email your videos in to post them.

You can also share videos with the world. One way is to download and install the CNN iReport app and use it to post videos you take to CNN's iReport website. You can make any news you've seen with your own eyes (and recorded) available to anyone else who is interested in viewing it.
