Retrieving Social Media Code To Embed On Your Site.

You can use the Embed Code App to embed social media.

 

Facebook:

https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/page-plugin/

Note that the Facebook plugin does not support GROUPS nor UN-OWNED pages, and it sometimes is just cantankerous and swirls without EVER displaying your data. And that's on them. It's their API that's wonky. 

Instagram

Go to the Instagram profile you wish to embed and on the far right are three horizontal dots:

Click the dots and select embed:

A box will appear and you simply click the Copy embed code button.

Twitter:

https://publish.twitter.com/#

Type in the same of the twitter feed (go to twitter feed and pick the feed and copy the URL to paste into the What Would You Like To Embed box.

Next select embed timeline.

PRO TIP: Click on Set Customization Options to set the height of the Twitter feed to 700 px. If you don't set a height, as you scroll down your webpage, Twitter will continue to fetch the twitter feed. You remember "This is the song that never ends, it's just goes on and on my friend..." Yeah, Twitter is just like that. By setting a height, you stop the doom-scroll.

YouTube:

You can go one of two ways with this one. You can embed a single video or a playlist.

Just One Video:

Let's say you're a history teacher covering the Dark Ages. Maybe this single Crash Course video on the Dark Ages is all you need.  First, click the Share arrow by thumbs up and down.

Next click on Embed with its < > button.

and click the copy button in the bottom right corner that is beneath the iframe code.

You just copied everything you need to paste into the embed code app.

A Whole Playlist

For this, find the Youtube channel that you want to follow.

Then click on "View Full Playlist"; this is usually below the video thumbnail.

Interestingly the share icon arrow is visible, but the word share isn't there.

So look for the share button (this pictured below) and click on it:

(The background color will vary.)

 

Next click on Embed with its < > button.  

Click the copy button in the bottom right corner that is beneath the iframe code.  

You just copied everything you need to paste into the embed code app.
