Instagram, our favorite photo and video sharing site, this week announced web embedding for Instagram content. It is a streamlined way to add Instagram photos and videos to your website, blog and articles.
Instagram Embed Case Use Example
A case use example could be a winery creating post event content on its blog complete with photos from attendees. It’s a great, easy way to create content for the winery blog and connect with your wine club members and/or tasting room visitors beyond the event.
How To Use Instagram Embed
Find the Instagram photo or video page from your desktop web browser. On the right side of the photo there is a new share button (just under the comments button).
Click the button to see the embed code. Copy the block of text it gives you and paste it into your blog, website or article. When you hit publish, the photo or video will appear.
When photos or videos are embedded they will appear with the Instagram username on them inside your content. Clicking on the Instagram logo will take people back to the users page on Instagram.com.
The instagram embed code is a great new way to continue integrating your social media into your blog content.
