Facebook announced earlier today that public posts can now be embedded onto certain websites, blogs, and other compatible media. Comments and replies will update in real time, and tags and hashtags will interact directly with Facebook for instant integration. At the moment, this features is only available to a select group of pre-approved sites, but it will be made widely available soon.
