ADD Facebook Post Photos Video Albums and Comments on My Website



Now it’s official. Earlier we were using some hacking technique to embed facebook posts or albums on our sites which required some coding understanding. Still that technique is still valid but not for those who are not regular coders. Facebook now has released it’s embedding feature for everyone which is quite interesting and very easy to implement.

Above is the example of such facebook video embedding.

Whatever you share on facebook becomes a post. So basically embedding a photo, video or simple post does mean embedding post either-way. Not going into much of details because this article is not for geeks, it’s for a normal user.

Where is the facebook embed code?


At the top right, you will see a down arrow on every post. If the post is shared as public or not locked in any other sense then you will see an embed post link while clicking this down arrow. Just click on that and you will get the embed code. Now paste this code anywhere on your website. What can be more simple than this.

Embed Facebook Post Photos Video

While writing this post I have found that embedding a photo is requires a little more than this.

How to embed FB Photo on My Website

What about Video and Album Embedding?

Video embedding is just like photo embedding. Just open that video in a new tab and you will find the embed post link right below the video.

Album embedding is not yet been introduced. I guess FB must be working on it and soon they will release the embed code for that too.

I don’t see embed post link on some posts?

There can be various reasons reasons if you are not seeing embed code for some particular ones.

Not shared publicly. [Solution: No solution. That will be against privacy policy]

Shared someone’s post. [Solution: Open the original post. If it’s an image then open that image like I have explained above and you will see the embed code.]

There can be more reasons too.

Can I embed my own facebook posts on my website?  How?

Yes, you can embed your own posts with one condition. Post must be publicly shared. Go to your page and look for the embed code of your own post and paste it on your website.

Is this embed code good for wordpress blog post too?

Yes. While writing a wordpress blog post, paste the code in text mode (not in visual mode) at the place you like it to be rendered. When you will switch back to visual mode you will not see anything but the embedding will remain there. You can hit preview to check.

Embed Facebook Posts on Webpage – Official Facebook Embedding

Now it’s official. You can embed facebook posts into your blog post. Facebook finally has introduced the way of embedding. Geeks had been trying all sort of things to make this possible but facebook is one step ahead and has introduced a very convenient way of embedding facebook posts. At the time of writing this post, embedding feature of facebook was limited to few publishers but facebook has said that they will rollout it for masses soon.

After observing the code by facebook for those publishers, I have realized that every blogger whether he is on facebook or in blogger can implement too. Facebook will integrate this feature into their platform and will be using same code which is being used by few publishers. PickTheTrick.com has written a detailed guide upon how to embed facebook posts within blog. If you are a professional blogger and need to embed facebook posts then you can refer to that post.

Why Facebook is releasing Embedding Posts

There is just one straight reason : Promotion. Facebook is making everything viral. Earlier, they had introduced many ways to show posts.

If someone is writing about the page you are following then you will get that feed. You can sort feeds in many ways. Faceook had added apps into everybody’s profiles without even asking anything. There were hundreds of tweaks. The obvious reason is to make things viral.

If you like to know more about this embedding then you look their developers page.

There are reports that facebook will be rolling-out this awesome embedding features for everyone soon. This feature is getting lot of hypes and hopes in blogging business.

Benefits for Bloggers from Facebook Embedding?

First of all you will get everything at the right spot. If you have uploaded a photo on your FB page and like to mention that within your post. (It’s actually the opposite way of mentioning) then you can use FB embedding.

Getting more likes to your facebook post will become more easy, because now you post will not be having limited viewers (only those who have liked your page) but all free traffic (direct or search engine) will be able to see it.

More Sharing and liking means encouragement: Yes, that’s what facebook wants. They are encouraging you to use their platform as much as you can. With features like this, people start embedding posts and that way facebook will get more liking of their platform.

SEO Aspect:

The major objective of SEO is to get visibility and traffic. And this embedding feature will do the same. But will it affect any sort of search ranking?

Being into this industry from past 7 years, I don’t think that this will affect rankings at all. A little addition of javascript within the page will not cost anything much. There is just one thing which you need to take care of is, you should write your post like you were writing earlier. If you will embed FB post just to show a photograph and not adding an actual photograph within your blog post, then what image crawler will index? I know a very small amount of traffic comes actually on website from image search but that’s not about just traffic. If you will not add some real photographs within your blog post with alt tag in it then search engine will not give you rich content points.

So, write your post normally and embed FB post/photo only when you feel like adding. Don’t over do anything (they call that spam) and you will be safe under the search engine’s umbrella.
