Facebook has just recently announced that they are rolling out Embedded Posts, which is only available for Bleacher Report, CNN, Huffington Post, Mashable, and PEOPLE at the moment. Like many additions and changes to Facebook, they like to test it out before they roll out the changes across all of Facebook. Embedded Posts will make it easier for people to link to Facebook posts from websites, and they will be more aesthetically pleasing.
The Embedded Posts can include videos, pictures, hashtags, and other content, which will allow people to like and share posts directly from the website that had posts that were embedded. The hashtags in the Embedded Posts can be clicked on in order to take people to Facebook content that includes that hashtag. It is a pretty simple process as well that requires just clicking on the carrot on the top-right corner of the post and then selecting the option to Embed Post. Facebook will then provide code to place on your website. This can have great potential for Social Media Marketing by integrating Facebook with a company’s website by more than just a “Like” button.
