Quick and Easy Ways to Add a Facebook Feed to Your Website

  1. Postano allows you to add a Facebook feed that auto-updates. You just add your Facebook address and they give you an embeddable code which you copy and paste into your site. You can also add Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and RSS feeds to the “iframe”, so it’s all aggregated in the same page allowing users to interact with and follow all of your social channels. This is a premium app so it’s great for income producing sites, and since it’s not free you know that not everyone is going to be using it. There is a free trial, though.
  2. Facebook provides a plug-in that allows you to add a comments thread to any page and allows FB users that are logged in to comment. The cool thing about this is that commenters can opt to have their comments published to their Facebook page which can increase interactions and drive traffic back to your page.
  3. This video tutorial describes how to take a bit of code (provided by David Taylor Webmedia) to which you simply add your Facebook page address. This gives you an iframe with a live feed of your Facebook page. Simple and effective! They also have a lot of other helpful videos about internet marketing.

Tools to Add Instagram Feeds to Your Website

  1. Postano

    Postano is by far the most elegant application that I’ve seen for adding Instagram to a website, but it does so much more! You can also aggregate the feeds from all of your social channels and display them in one, elegant iframe… you can even embed it on your Facebook fanpage! There is a free trial so you can try it out, and the pricing starts at $10 per month.

  2. Embedagram

    Embedagram allows users of Instagram to embed their most recent photos on their websites, weblogs and anywhere else an HTML <iframe> is embeddable. It’s a much more simple solution than Postano, but it may be enough to suit your needs.

  3. Simply Instagram

    Simply Instagram is a WordPress.org plug-in, so if you aren’t on that platform then this isn’t for you. Again, not nearly as robust as Postano, but it gives you several options for how to display Instagram photos and looks good.

  4. Webstagram

    Webstagram is mainly an app for viewing Instagram on the net, but they have a widget that you can put on your webpage that displays your latest photos in the sidebar. There are also video instructions for tumblr, WordPress.com and Blogger/Blogspot so it’s especially worth a look if you’re on one of those platforms.

  5. To be honest, I was surprised by the lack of options for embedding Instagram on a webpage. Is there something I missed? If so, please let me know in the comments and I will be happy to add them if they fit the bill. Happy Instagraming!

Robin Good: Postano is a social media content aggregation and curation platform that can be integrated in your web site or Facebook page.

Through its internal dashboard it can be set to agregate coming from any of your social media channels. From WordPress or Tumblr blogs to Facebook Pages, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest accounts, Postano offers a comprehensive array of social media sources to tap into. Additionally you can add any RSS feeds that may be relevant to you.

Postano allows you to pick and select which content you want to publish and how you want to it look and appear. Your curated channel can be finally integrated as a full embed in your website and/or added as a tab to your Facebook page.

One great key feature available as a WordPress plugin but also usable with any other publishing platform allows for all of the content and links “embedded” in your site via POstano to be also fully indexed by standard search engines.
