YouTube has eliminated video-length time limits.

You can download videos from Facebook by using third-party websites that extract download links from the Facebook website. These sites allow users to save videos from other streaming sites, such as Vimeo, Dailymotion and MySpace. Once the Facebook video you want is downloaded to your computer, you can upload the video to YouTube like you would any other video file. The download and upload times may take minutes or hours, depending on the file size of the video.
