Embed Facebook Posts on Your WordPress.com Site

Using your WordPress.com site as your digital hub on the web just got a bit easier. We’re delighted to let you know that you can embed Facebook posts directly into posts and pages on your blog. Here’s how.

First, click on the date stamp under any post to grab the post’s URL:

fbdatestamp

You’ll be taken to the page for that individual update. Copy the URL in the address bar:

fbURL

Paste the URL of the Facebook post directly into your post editor on its own line:

fbposteditor

Here’s what the embedded post looks like in all its glory:

Embedding works for photo posts, too:

    Awesome! Now, to embed Facebook videos into WordPress.com (unless I missed something that says this is absolutely possible…)

    Pretty neat! I hope we’ll see this come to self-hosted WP blogs via Jetpack, too!

    interesting. But I’m wondering is this a blessing or a curse?

    I’ve been waiting for this feature for quite a while. Normally it only works the other way around but this time, it’s a bang! Good job WordPress.
