How to Save Video News?
Saving video news stories is the most complicated task for many internet users. The primary reason is that most websites and apps don’t allow users to download videos.

However, there are a few methods to download video news stories. And here they are!

Download them with an Online Video Downloader. 

When it comes to downloading video news stories, nothing is better than an online video downloader. You can easily find a reliable online videos downloader on search engines. Using such a tool can help you download news stories from various platforms, including social media, video-sharing networks, and online newspapers.

To download a video news story via an online video downloader, you only need the video link and paste it into the tool. After that, choose the video quality, and the video will be downloaded to your device. The best thing about the tools is that they are free for everyone.

However, if you want to download a news story from a social media platform like Facebook, you can use a Facebook video downloader. The downloader will help you download any news uploaded to the forum. Plus, if the video news story is posted as a story, you also have the option to use an online Facebook story downloader. It can help you download every type of video story from Facebook, whether it is video news or an entertaining clip.

To summarize, you can download any news story published anywhere online using video downloaders.

Use Video Downloading Apps

Video downloading apps also allow users to download various kinds of videos from almost every platform. These video-downloading apps are great if you want to download videos quite often. Install an app on your device and use it whenever you want to download a news story or any other kind of video to share it with others.

Such apps are available on both App Store and Play Store. Visit the store according to your device, search for video downloaders, read users’ reviews, and download the app you think has all the desired features.

Once you install the video downloading application on your device, you can download any video you want. Most of them are free, quick and effortless to use.

The overall video downloading process is very similar to online video downloaders.

However, if you have desktop devices, these apps are useless as they don’t work on them.

How to Save Written News Articles?

Bookmarked Them

If you find a news article interesting and want to save it on your device, the best method you have is bookmarking. This method helps you save your favourite articles to your browser. You don’t have to search for an article every time you want to read it once you’ve bookmarked it. Instead, go to your browser, open bookmarks, and you will see the article there.

Bookmarking also allows you to save as many news articles as you want. It benefits those researching a topic and wanting to use news articles as references.

Copy Text

Copying the whole text of news articles is another excellent way to save news stories. It provides various benefits to you. If you want them for research purposes, you can easily open the documents where you saved the news stories, copy the required text, and paste the reference.

However, also make sure to copy the URL. That’s how if you want to cite them or give a reference, you can easily visit the website, check availability, and cite the sources. Although it requires a bit of additional effort, it is very helpful.

Take Screenshots

Here is another easy and great way to save news articles. This trick is very helpful for all those who want to share a piece of news with others. Therefore, many people use this practice and share news on various online platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Moreover, it doesn’t take a lot of time.

If you read a news article and find a particular portion of the news very interesting, use this method to save it to share with others or keep it on your device for reference.

You can use this trick on both mobile and desktop devices. Almost every device has a built-in feature to take screenshots, use them, and you can quickly save news articles.

How to Share News Across Different Platforms?
Once you have saved the news articles or stories on your devices, sharing them isn’t difficult at all. You can use any platform that you use for data sharing.
