Facebook Now Supports Embedding Of Posts

Facebook is once again taking a move out of other social networks’ playbook. Today, Facebook is now making available the option to embed status updates, photos and videos from its users on any site. Previously, reposting something from Facebook involved taking a screenshot of the post or copying the text, image or video on another site, which made it difficult to find the source of the post.

Previously, reposting something from Facebook involved taking a screenshot of the post or copying the text, image or video on another site, which made it difficult to find the source of the post. With the embed option now live, users simple click on a drop down menu at the side of the post and copy the embed code anywhere on the internet that support embedded content.

 

 

With the embed function, readers will now be able to interact with a post. They will now have the option to do anything they can on the main site, including reading comments, liking a post or following the person who published the post. However, only posts that are publicly visible can be embedded, so folks who have privacy issues should simply change their settings to hide their posts from other people.
