Facebook now allows you to embed posts
Facebook now allows you to embed posts in your blog or website. It was rolled out a month ago for some larger companies and is now available for everyone.
Anyone using a third party website (or their own) can now embed a public Facebook post directly into the site.
You can find the line of code needed to embed a post by clicking on the dropdown arrow in a post’s upper right-hand corner.
Here is how it looks….
Some agencies might find this useful if they use a blog or post news. I am a believer that government and law enforcement agencies should be concentrating more on their websites and driving people back to them. Many seem to be doing the opposite and concentrating soley on social media (which they don’t own, control, and will eventually become less popular) Private sector companies almost always drive traffic back to their websites, which is a smarter idea.
Using embedded posts from facebook or embedding tweets from twitter allows you to reference social media while keeping your reader at your website or blog.
