How to Export Slow Motion Videos From iOS to Facebook

This was a puzzler. I’ve had an iPhone 5S since last fall, but haven’t ever done much more than just play with the slow motion video capture feature. Yesterday though, I had a need to take a slow-mo video and post it to Facebook. I recorded the video easily enough, set the slow motion start […]
