I know I said I wouldn't post a lot about the web site, but my inner geek can't be silent about this: Facebook now allows embeddable posts.


Now I am sitting here with my master links spreadsheet and a cup of coffee, and contemplating the best use of this new awesome Facebook feature on my web site. It wouldn't be much of a challenge if there was only one or two related Facebook posts to share on any given topic, but in some cases there are a dozen or more. Do I include everything or do I make judicious selections? I guess the answer is somewhere in between.

On the one hand, my main goal is to have a 'portal to what is being published elsewhere about Magne', and each individual Facebook post about a topic will have unqiue comments, possibly additional links and information included, and it could be helpful to be as thorough as possible.

On the other hand, I don't want to drive myself crazy or over-document things. I have a life after all ;-) And I also don't want my neat and organized posts to start looking like a massive jumble of random stuff or a complete free for all.

And on the other other hand, if I start to embed Facebook posts, it stands to reason that I should go back and look for significant Twitter posts to embed as well. I actually started embedding Twitter posts recently and I think they look nice on the page, and they probably add to the SEO ranking of my site, etc., so that's good. But overall it makes my brain hurt trying to come up with a reasonable limit to these things.

Of course I am also thinking about how to use the embeddable Facebook posts on the other sites I run, which is contributing to the OHYESBUTOHNO feeling I have right now.

Anyway, let's give it a try right here, shall we?

Oh boo, it didn't work here. But it does work here.
