Embedding Social Media

Embedded social media posts should be used for the purposes of critique or/and education in the context of the multi-media narrative assignment. They should be included only if they enhance the audiences’ understanding of the story being told.

FACEBOOK “Embedded Posts are a simple way to put public posts – by a Page or a person on Facebook – into the content of your web site or web page. Only public posts from Facebook Pages and profiles can be embedded.” (from Facebook’s Developers page)

Paste the embed code provided by Facebook into the text editor on your WordPress page.
