Starting today, Facebook is rolling out a new feature that will let people embed public posts, photographs, videos and updates into blog posts and websites.
By clicking on a drop down arrow on the right hand corner of a post, you can copy the embed code and paste it into an HTML-based page. But, more than likely, you won't be able to see it yet. Why? Because Facebook has only released the feature for five news organizations, with everyone else to follow later. The code will allow people to like and share the post from where ever it's embedded, so a popular post will become even more popular. Check out the example below, taken from Venus Williams' page:
"Today, we are beginning to roll out Embedded Posts to make it possible for people to bring the most compelling, timely public posts from Facebook to the rest of the Web," said Dave Capra, a Facebook software engineer. "Every day, public figures, journalists, and millions of regular people share their thoughts on what's happening around the world on Facebook publicly."
So, make sure you get your privacy settings in order: you can become popular for all of the wrong reasons.
