FacebookEmbeddedPostsFacebook caught up with competitors Twitter and YouTube on Wednesday by unveiling embeddable posts. Public photos, videos, status updates and more will soon be able to be embedded into blog posts and websites by all users.

Embedding posts is a relatively straightforward process. Once a user enables the feature, all that is needed is to copy and paste a HTML code.

“Embedded Posts let people add public posts from Facebook to their blog or web site,” software engineers Dave Capra and Ray He said in a post on the company’s blog. “People can also like and share the post directly from the embed.”

The company used a post from The British Monarchy about the royal baby as an example of an embeddable post. The post even featured a “RoyalBabyBoy” hashtag, accessible from the embed. They also used a photo from tennis star Andy Murray’s page after his recent victory at Wimbledon, where a user can like Murray’s page directly from the embed.

For now, embeds are limited to a small group of outlets – CNN, the Huffington Post, Bleacher Report, People Magazine and Mashable. Posts must be set to be shared publicly on Facebook in order to be embedded – which should affect the 72 percent of users who use private settings.

Facebook’s announcement comes just three weeks after the launch of embedding posts from Instagram, one of their properties.
