facilitated diffusion happens for one type of molecule while endocytosis happens for big particles like a bacterial cell.
facilitated diffusion is a passive process driven by the concentration
gradient while endocytosis is an active one that need energy.
facilitated diffusion needs a carrier protein to transport the molecule to the inside of the cell, while endocytosis needs the formation of a vesicle from the cell membrane around the particle to be engulfed.
