Embedded Posts from Facebook

Facebook, end of July of this year, had launched embedded posts for a few web portals like Mashable, CNN, Huffington Post according to its blog post, and now has launched it for all its users.

Anyone hence forth can embed Facebook posts, images, videos or updates in their websites, just like how we could do it with Tweets from Twitter.

How to embed a post on your website?

To embed a post on your website, first check if the post is shared public by the user by hovering over the audience selector (you’ll see a globe icon). Only public posts from Pages and Facebook users can be embedded.

If the post is public, click the “Embed Post” option in the drop down menu:
Embedded Posts From Facebook

In the dialog that pops up, simply copy and paste the code provided on your own web page:
Embedded Posts From Facebook-Code

Like and share the Embedded Post directly from your web page

Embedded Posts display just like they do on Facebook, with the ability to show pictures, videos, hashtags, and other content. People can interact with Embedded Posts by:

Liking or sharing the post directly from your web page
Liking the Page or following other posts from the author using the top right button
Visiting the post’s comments, photos, hashtags and other content on Facebook
