How Facebook Embedded Posts Look Like?

Facebook launched embedded posts. Now you can add posts from your Facebook page to any blog or website. And it will look like this.

If the user clicks “like” it will add it right there on the site but clicking “comment” and “X comments” will take you to Facebook. “Share” will open up a regular sharing window. It might be a good idea to have the comment feed also on the embedded content. This way it wouldn’t matter where people choose to engage in conversation, your site or Facebook. Of course, Facebook wants you to visit their site.

Embedding itself is pretty straightforward. Go to the content you want to embed and click “Embed Post”.
