This is really great news: you can now embed Facebook posts directly into your WordPress blog – just like we’ve been able to do with individual Tweets.
I really don’t know why it took Facebook so long to make this possible. With so many niche bloggers and reporters covering stories that are developing in real time, we often need to reference things happening on social media sites.
This is especially true when covering the actions of celebrities and other A-listers. For example, when Jay Z released the video to “Holy Grail” via his Facebook page, it was talked about and linked to by countless individuals. But now it can be directly embedded into the post, saving the reader a step and increasing the likelihood that they engage with the content.
Facebook is battling Twitter to take back more real-time action, and this definitely helps.
