Facebook Introduces Embedded Posts


Facebook today introduced embedded posts, a new feature that allows people to bring the public stories they find compelling on the world’s biggest social network to their own blog or website. Embedded posts may contain pictures, hashtags, videos as well as other content. People who view the embedded post on a user’s blog or website will be able to like it or share it directly from the embed itself.

To get an idea of how this would work, take a look at the screenshot of a post that was published by Andy Murray on Facebook after winning the 2013 Wimbledon Championship. If this particular post is embedded by someone on their website or blog, visitors landing on that particular page would be able to like this post from there. If the post contains hashtags, they can be clicked within the embed to discover similar content on Facebook. Right now, a handful of media organizations are being given the ability to embed public Facebook posts. These include the Huffington Post, Bleacher Report and PEOPLE. Facebook says that broader availability of this feature is coming soon.
