Facebook introduces embedded 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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
