Facebook Embedded Posts 101

Yesterday, Facebook opened Embedded Posts to all users. The capability allows anyone to “paste in” a public Facebook post to their blog or website.

Embedded Posts on 3rd party websites look exactly as they do on Facebook, and enable users to like and/or share the post directly from the site. Embedded Posts with video will also function just as they do on the Facebook platform.

So how do I embed a post to my webpage?

  • Locate the post you want to embed on Facebook (the post can be an individual user’s post or an brand’s post, but it must be public)
  • Select “Embed Post” from the dropdown menu in the upper right corner of the post

  • Copy & paste the code provided into your webpage
