How to Get Facebook on Roku

Instead of asking “How to,” we should ask, “Can you get Facebook on Roku?” The answer will be No. But, there are ways to watch Facebook videos on Roku connected TV or Roku TV. Roku is a streaming device designed to stream media on your TV from apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube, etc. But then, you cannot get social media apps like Facebook or Instagram. For Firestick, Apple TV, and Smart TV platforms, you can download the Facebook Watch app to stream all your Facebook Videos. But, you can’t find that app on the Roku platform.
