Facebook has officially added the option to embed status updates, photos, or videos from its users on any site. You cannot embed the two-to-four photos that represent a photo album.
The new embed command is located by activating the little down arrow that activates the drop down menu already used for reporting a post or marking it as spam -- or if it is your own post, where you boost, hide, make a date change, or delete the post.
Readers that are reading an article with a Facebook embed are able to Like, Comment or Share right from the embed. People that aren't inclined to use Facebook can still take a look -- right in the blog article.
Twitter and Instagram features already included the embed feature, which was a desired feature of Facebook by many. Unfortunately, Facebook's first version does not scale like Twitter's version. For example, Twitter can be embedded in a 300-pixel-wide column, but Facebook overflows a 300-pixel-wide column.
