Sending a Video Message via E-Mail

Tired of sending plain text messages? Add some spark with a video clip. On Facebook, it’s easy—especially if you already uploaded or recorded a clip. To send a video that’s already on Facebook (your own video or a Facebook friend’s), here’s what you do:
1. Display the video on its own page. For example, head to your Profile, click your Video tab, and then click one of your videos, or you can click a video in your News Feed and then click its title (below the video).
2. Click Share (to the right of the video). The Post to Profile box opens.
3. Click Send as a Message Instead. The Send as a Message box appears.
4. Click in the To box and type the names of one or more Facebook friends.
5. Click in the Message
