Following the lead of its photo and video-sharing platform, Instagram, Facebook has announced embedded posts, giving users the ability to embed interactive status updates across the web. This feature is available for public status updates only.

Facebook said it’s beginning to roll this out now with select news media, with more availability coming soon. Facebook also gave tips for discovering content to share with this new feature:
- Liking pages or following the profiles of public figures and news publishers.
- Browsing hashtag feeds.
- Facebook interest lists.
