Facebook allows posts to be embedded

Facebook has introduced a feature that allows users to embed posts to any third party website or blog.

This from Canoe: “To embed any public post on an external website, simply click on the arrow in the upper right-hand corner of the item, then select “Embed Post.” A text box appears with code to copy and paste, just as is the case when embedding YouTube videos, tweets or Instagram photos, to name just a few.”

Facebook embeds will allow newsrooms to easily bring those great comments shared on your fan pages on to your website/blog. It should also increase the number of fans. The widget allows users to ‘like’ a page straight from your website. Pretty cool.

The Facebook development page has more information about embeds.
