Facebook lets users showcase posts on other websites
SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Facebook on Wednesday began letting people share social network posts at blogs or other spots on the Internet.
An Embedded Posts feature being tested out at CNN, Huffington Post, Bleacher Report, PEOPLE and Mashable websites lets Facebook members broadcast posts in real-time to broader online audiences.
"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," Facebook software engineers Dave Capra and Ray He said in a blog post.
"When embedded, posts can include pictures, videos, hashtags and other content," they continued. "People can also like and share the post directly from the embed."
