Expect to see more Facebook in your life whether you want to or not.

The Menlo Park social media giant announced that users will soon be able to embed public Facebook posts as easily as they can embed tweets and YouTube videos on websites.

It will look sort of like this, but it will be a Facebook post.

For now, Facebook said a few select publications will be able to embed Facebook posts in their news articles, but soon it will become available to many more users.

Within embedded posts, users will be able to see posts or pictures shared publicly, click a user name or picture to be taken to that account, "Like" the post, or share it on their own account. Users can also click "Comments" to be taken to the post's page on Facebook's website and read the comments others have left.

Facebook users can get more information about the embedded post by going to Facebook's Developer Blog.
