Facebook Embedded Posts - Social Media

​Embedded Posts are a way to put public posts - by a ​Facebook ​Page or a ​an Individual Profile Facebook Page - into the Content of your ​WebSite or ​WebPage.  The embedded post will show any media attached to it, as well as the number of likes, shares, and comments that the post has. 

Embedding posts will let people using your web site see the same rich information that is shown on Facebook.com, and they will enable people to follow or like ​Content​ and Pages directly from the embed.  

To embed a post, first check if the post is public by hovering over the audience selector (you'll see a globe icon). Only public posts from Facebook Pages and profiles can be embedded.

The Meaning Of Facebook's 'Talking About This' - Social Media

This Post is an effort to demystify the term 'Talking About This' that you will see under the Cover Photo [the horizontal image space] on your Facebook Pages.

There has been a little confusion on the understanding of this aspect. 

Whenever a person does the below / takes one of these Actions, it counts toward People 'Talking About This'. 

  • Like a Page
  • Post on the Page Wall
  • Like a Post
  • Comment on a Post
  • Share a Post
  • Answer a Question
  • RSVP to a Page’s Event
  • Mention the Page in a Post
  • Tag the Page in a Photo
  • Check in at a Place
  • Share a Check-in Deal
  • Like a Check-in Deal
  • Write a Recommendation
  • Claim an Offer

It goes without saying that the above is required and holds true if 'Tagging' is done in correct method. 

Have you considered this? Have you actually taken note of this parameter and the numbers it reflects?

Consider this: If your number of Members on your Facebook Page is 1000 and 200 People are 'Talking About This' then you have a good 20% virality going on. However in reality this may not be the case. 20% is way too high. An average of 1% to 2% is good to go with. 

This number is visible to Administrator of the Pages and to Visitors as well. It is good to understand and know as to which Pages have good and relevant Content such that other Members on the Page are conversing about. It is a good deciding point if a person should join the Page. 

It is a valuable tool for Page Administrators to know how much of interaction is actually taking place. As the Page Administrator you can view the 'Talking About This' even in the 'Insights' section. Here you can see the individual Posts and their individuals counts for 'Talking About This'. 

Now your turn. Consider this: While you know how many are  'Talking About This' you also know How Many Are Not Talking !!

Facebook UpDates Its Terms Of Usage For Pages - Social Media

Facebook has recently incorporated a good amendment to its existing Terms of usage. This is a welcomed change!

Facebook goes on to mention that it has removed the requirement that promotions on Facebook only be administered through Apps. This was the case so far. Now, promotions may be administered on Facebook Page 'Timelines' and in Apps on Facebook. 

Facebook shares for example that Businesses can now:
  • Collect the Member / Audience entries by having the users post on the Page or comment / like a Page Post.
  • Collect entries by having users being able to message the Page.
  • Get and utilize likes as a voting mechanism!
As before, however, Facebook goes on to state that the Businesses cannot administer Promotions on Personal Profile Timelines.
