This picture compares active transport which can be confused with facilitated diffusion. The difference is that in active transport energy is used with the carrier protein however with facilitated it isn't used.

Facilitated diffusion of glucose by the glucose uniporter. The transport of glucose across the plasma membrane can be in either direction, but is mostly into the cell. The glucose uniporter has two states: open to the exterior of the cell (A) and open to the interior of the cell (B). In either state, the glucose uniporter will bind glucose and undergo a conformational change, delivering glucose to the opposite side. The direction of glucose transport is driven by the concentration gradient.
