Facebook Unveiled Yet Another Remarkable Update – Embedded Post Feature
Now Embed Latest Posts and Updates from Facebook to Your Blogs or Websites with Just a Single-Tap and Encourage Volumes of Conversation
Lately the social media giant has been raising quite a lot of eyebrows by introducing back-to-back updates or features. On Wednesday, 31st July, Facebook has revealed the new features in its update arsenal, “Embed Post”. The feature is rolled out in an attempt to bridge whatever little gap remained between websites and social platforms.
The new feature gives the users an ability to embed the posts from the social channel to a personal blog or a website. In addition to that all the contents of the post are also embedded automatically, like videos, images, likes, comments, shares and even hashtags. This is truly a highly-valuable tool for savvy marketers and news agencies to include embed status updates, videos and other useful content into their posts. This update will encourage users to generate useful content with the intention of getting it embedded on quality websites.
Though according to Facebook ‘broader accessibility’ to the feature will be available soon, for now the feature is accessible to only few top websites like Mashable, CNN, Huffington Post, etc. This update reflects the endeavors that Facebook is trying to make to create more footprints on the World Wide Web and become the single-destination of valuable content. Of course, with this update Facebook will be able to bring the best potential out of its advertisement campaigns by displaying pertinent ads next to the feeds that are embedded or shared.
The embed feature works in a pretty simple manner. First you’ll need to make sure that you can embed the content by checking whether the post is public or not. If it is public, you can access the embed post feature from the dropdown menu on the post. Upon clicking ‘embed post’, an html tag will be generated allowing you to copy and paste the code onto your website to insert the Facebook content. Simple, isn’t it?
Embed post feature is not exclusive to Facebook as it is was first published by Twitter and later adopted by Instagram.
