Facebook Introduce Embedded Posts

Facebook are rolling out another update... and this one has HUGE potential. Facebook announced today that they are introducing embedded posts. This feature is currently only available to a few of the big news publishers but should be becoming more wide spread for the rest of us soon.

What does it mean?

It means you'll be able to easily embed Facebook posts directly on to your website or blog. Your readers will then be able to like, share and comment on your post directly from your site. There is also a nice feature where they can 'like' your Facebook page.

N.B. You will only be able to embed public posts.

Facebook offers some advice about finding posts to embed on their blog and also highlights the importance of using hashtags on your posts in order to show up well in search results.

Are you excited about this new feature? Are you already using hashtags on your Facebook posts? Will you be embedding posts when the feature becomes available?



I love to hear from you. So feel free to comment, but keep in mind the basics of blog etiquette — no spam, no profanity, no slander, etc.
