How to Embed Facebook Posts in Websites and Blogs


Facebook is not just a Social Networking site, but has become a big knowledge hub too. Earlier people used to promote links of websites and blogs on Facebook, but now due to highly increased use of Facebook for sharing knowledge, opinions and events sharing of Facebook posts on websites is also becoming important. The biggest socialization site is used by government officials, celebrities, public figures, writers, businesses. Their official announcements and opinions are being shared directly on Status updates. So, for the purpose of analysis, discussions, learning, reactions it has become important to share  Facebook posts on websites too. For the authenticity of the post we can embed Facebook posts onto our website or blog very easily.




Steps to Embed Facebook Posts:  


  1. Go to the Facebook post you want to embed on your website.
  2. Click on the icon which is on the top right hand corner of the post.
  3. A drop down list of options will appear, click on the ‘Embed post’.
  4. After clicking, the code will appear, just copy the code.
  5. Paste it on the website, where you want to embed the post.






If you have tried to embed posts, you might have noticed, only some posts have ‘Embed Post’ option and not all. The reason is Facebook allows sharing the posts which are shared as ‘public’. For  personal profiles’posts , depending on the settings, one can share the posts with only friends, or friends of friends or the user can keep the post public. So if the posts are not public, Embed posts option will not appear on the personal profiles. 

Embedded Post:




You can embed posts by others also. If you or the user whose post you have shared, changed the privacy settings from public to limited visibility, the post will not be visible on the website. Instead, a message will be displayed saying, ‘embedded post is no longer available.’
Please note, the user whose posts are embedded won’t be notified by Facebook.


Benefits of Embedding Facebook Posts:

  1.  Directly embedded post is clearly visible with the authenticity than the screenshot.
  2.  People can like and comment the embedded post on website, they will be redirected to the  original post on Facebook.
  3.  People may follow, thus it will increase the engagement, and following.
