This makes me wonder. Why do they don't post their videos on facebook to create more audience? I know they earn cash on youtube but why not add more diversion to get more audience? Plz enlighten me more about this..

    This is undoubtedly an interesting question to ask, but are you sure that successful YouTubers are turning down Facebook offers? I read and think I posted some threads about Facebook new tactics to invest hundreds of millions of dollars for new video forms and contents, which will be used for its new video service. There's a list of celebrities, TV networks, and similar, who signed contracts with Facebook. If YouTubers are still hesitating, we need to wait and see what's going to happen when this Facebook video service becomes fully active and expectedly successful.

    Facebook has the potential of killing youtube for instant actionable traffic.
    I believe it will become the choice method to initially draw action-takers to any offer and could even beat the SERPs to that end.

    Because they dont need to do it, they have gigantic audience on their Youtube channels, they dont need to get traffic from other sources.
    Besides, their fans probably do the sharing for them.

    Because they are famous for posting their videos on YouTube, not Facebook

    You could always ask, but if they are that famous...

    They probably won't have the time to answer, even if they saw your question.

    Me personally...

    I would post in as many spots as I could, but perhaps that's not something they can do.

    (deals with advertisers, contracts, etc)

  • I think it's because they also earn per number of views and ads shown in their videos, Posting their videos on Facebook would bypass that and in the end they'll earn less even if they get more fans.

    UNLESS Facebook finds a way to incentive the videos on their platform.

    Facebook just announced 8 billion video views per day. This number is made out of lies, cheating and worst of all: theft. All of this is wildly known but the media giant Facebook is pretending everything is fine, while damaging independent creators in the process. How does this work?

    Facebook needs a solution to protect content creators. Without this they cannot compete with YouTube.

    Even on YouTube many creators have switched to a subscription model using services like patreon because only around 20% of the views are generating revenue due to Adblock.

    Because they already established a brand in YouTube. To those who already got huge following from Youtube, uploading the video to Facebook is not necessary since they can share the uploaded Youtube videos on Facebook.
