Facebook introduces embedded posts

In an attempt to improve sharing on the giant social network, Facebook is now announcing the ability to embed public Facebook posts.

Just a couple of months after announcing hashtags, Facebook is now introducing the capability to embed posts from the social network to other platforms. The main goal here is obviously to let its billions of users share posts faster and easier. This will be useful particularly to blogs and other sites.

For a post to be embedded, it has to be set to public. It can include videos, images, hashtags, and other content, and other users can also like and share the embedded posts, which is pretty cool.

Citing examples of the feature at work, Facebook pointed out the recently published post of the of the British Monarchy's official Facebook page showing the royal baby leaving the hospotal for the first time. An embedeed post from Fareed Zakaria of CNN was also include int eh examples.

The feature is now available to a few media outlets which includes People, CNN, The Huffington Post, Bleacher Report, and Mashable.
