I’m practicing embedding a Facebook update on my blog. It’s super-easy!
You can embed your own public posts from your profile or your fan page. You can also embed other people’s public posts.
Blogging Bistro client, Davis Bunn, has an inspirational contemporary suspense novel releasing November 5, 2013. When you like his Facebook page, you can instantly read Chapters 1-3.
I decided to embed Davis’s image-based post that promotes the free sample chapters.
1. To embed a Facebook post, hover your mouse over the top righthand corner of any Facebook update.
2. A pop-down dialog box will display. Click “Embed Post.”
3. Copy the HTML code. Log in to the admin area of your blog, create a new post, and and paste the code into the HTML area of your text editor.
The cool thing about embedded posts is that they display any attached media (in this case, a graphic image), plus the number of likes, shares, and comments the post has.
Only public posts from Facebook Pages and Profiles can be embedded. Check whether the post is public by hovering over the audience selector (the globe icon that displays next to the post’s date).
Here’s the finished product.
What do you think? How would you use an embedded Facebook post on your blog or website?
