The New feature
If you are a blogger and use Facebook as a resource, you must be aware how important Facebook videos are and making the lives easier, the platform has been offering simple ways to embed the videos by offering you its HTML code that is needed to be integrated in your source code. Embedding videos was still something very common and sites like YouTube and Dailymotion offer same facility by allowing you to copy the code of the video and embed it in to your blog.
What is new this time is an idea of integrating popular Facebook posts (and NOT videos) that are been shared by celebrities and people who use Facebook as a medium of contributing their say and lives in the social media.

We recently shared minute details about the birth of George Alexander Louis, the royal baby and for news such like that this Facebook embed post feature is more like a magic wand where it offers further credibility to the content you are sharing with your readers.
Embed Facebook posts in WordPress

Select a post you want to embed in your WordPress account. Make sure that the post is been set to public and is intended to be shared publicly.
There is a more option above the post you are now about to embed, click on it and select Embed Post.
This will open up a new box with your desired embedded HTML code, copy it.
Now open your WordPress editor and switch to ‘Text’ mode. Paste the copied code and press publish.

Limitations of the feature
The offer, though of a significant value, is still not available for all of the pages but is only limited to the most credible fan pages like British monarchy, mashable, etc. The team however is working on it and will soon be making it as an available feature for all the posts that are set to public for sharing.
It is a dilemma that everything been intended good always have some security threats too. With the said feature, anyone can embed your posts that you mistakenly forget to set to be shared with friends only and post it as a public post. This can lead in serious issues emerging.
Take it as a piece of advice and do not post anything personal like pictures, contact numbers , even relationship facts as a public post because by doing so, you can always expect your nightmares coming all your way as a bitter reality.
