Posted: August 1, 2013 by Alex Chan
Following the steps of Twitter and YouTube, Facebook announced that they are bringing "Embeddable Posts" into their social network. Facebook users will soon have the opportunity to use embedded posts which will lead to more open public conversations. According to Facebook, the embeddable posts will allow blogs, news organization, and users to share more information to the public.
Any post can be embedded. Once a user's account is enabled, he/she will have the option to embed a post. The process is very simple. Users need to click on the "embed post" button on the right side of the screen, copy the code, cut it, and then paste it into a blog entry or a file. Users must remember that for a post to be embedded, it must first be set to be public.
Nearly 72% of all Facebook posts are private. That is why the company is putting serious efforts to engage the general public into open or live conversations. A few months ago, the social network introduced "hashtags", and this week they will introduced the "embedded post" feature. So far, the feature will be available to a small number of users, mainly news and media organizations like the CNN, People Magazine, Bleacher Report, and others.
