Social networking giant Facebook has announced a new feature, which will enable users to add ‘Embed Post’ to the newest updates. Facebook’s recent introduction of ‘Embed Post’ has become the second imitated feature from the micro blogging site Twitter in 2013.

With the help of this new feature, users can enable web portals to share the social network’s content on their site. The latest feature by Facebook will make it possible for people to bring timely public posts from the social networking site to the rest of the web. However, the catch is that not all Facebook videos can be embedded.

Users can post only those videos whose privacy settings are set to public. The announcement says that the feature is currently being tested with CNN, Bleacher Report, Huffington Post, PEOPLE and Mashable pages, but Facebook has assured that it will provide wider availability in the near future. In 2013, the latest feature on Facebook has become the second feature which is copied from Twitter.

In June 2013, Facebook introduced hashtags, which is a feature also available on – and associated with – Twitter. The social networking site announced the new feature with the help of the example of Royal baby status update on the British Monarchy page.
