Facebook has announced the rollout of embedded posts, which will let users like and share photos, content, videos, and hashtags from public posts such as blogs, social networks, and websites directly with everyone.
However, posts that are set to public can be embedded. The feature is currently launched on CNN, People, Mashable, The Huffington Post, and Bleacher Report but Facebook has confirmed that it will be broadly available soon.
The example of embedded posts shared on the Facebook Newsroom are:
