Embedding content from Facebook

Just testing a new plugin that allows you to share albums, events, notes, videos, and more from public Facebook pages. Alas, personal photo albums are not embeddable.

How it works – activate the “Embed Facebook” plugin, then paste in the URL of the content into a post of page. Like embedding videos via oEmbed, the URL should be on a separate line.

For instance, paste in the URL for the Otis Alumni Facebook page:

https://www.facebook.com/OtisAlumni

When published, it will appear as:

https://www.facebook.com/OtisAlumni

Pretty cool!

Here is an event at the Brand Library and Art Center that features work by Fine Arts Faculty member, Kim Schoen:

It works well for individual photos. Here is one from the 2010 Senior Show from Otis College Admissions:

I can’t seem to get it to work for photo album in Preview.

Edited to add: I think I’ll make this plugin automatically be turned on for all blogs, even though I can’t seem to get it to embed slideshows.
