Facebook Launches Embeddable Posts

In its most recent play at integrating its service with the entire Interwebs, Facebook has completed the deployment of Embeddable Posts, a widget that allows any website or blog to include a Facebook post directly in its own content via an HTML5 or XFBML widget.

This creates enormous opportunities for syndicating all types of content, from text, photo / albums, and video from Facebook, allowing the social platform to serve as a source of news, taking a page from Twitter's playbook.

More on this from TechCrunch and some instructions on how to embed posts from Facebook .

Here's an example from a recent promotion run by audiobook retailer, Audible.
