We have added a new feature that allows users to add "live" Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter content to their posts. This type of content is increasingly used by the news media to supplement or drive stories with timely original source content. For example, a story on Donald Trump, might include his recent Tweets. Now you can embed that same content in your posts here on Yabberz just like the "pros". The term for this is "Embedding" and it is a little different from "linking".
How to do it?
The key word is "Embed". When you look at the respective social sites (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) you must find the "Embed Post" option on the piece of content you want to add. Below is a screen shot of where to find the Embed Post option on a Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram post. On Twitter and Instagram --- look for the three dots "..." at the bottom right of the content. When you click on the embed post option, the respective sites will give you some text to copy and paste. Copy and paste that code into any post/comment/reply entry box on Yabberz, give it a few seconds, and you should see content like the examples from National Geographic below. Getting the embeds to land exactly where you want in a post is tricky and not always possible.

What type of Embeds to add?
This is a great tool to add news content. For example posts directly from leaders or newsmakers. We would discourage posting your friends tweet about his or her great dinner. Yabberz content standards apply to embedded content just as they do to normal content. Please note that Twitter and Facebook in particular allow all kinds of content that would not meet Yabberz standards for posting. As an example, Twitter allows full up pornography.
And Now the Resulting Embeds !
Below are three live examples of what a member will see once embedded content is added. All three examples were taken from National Geographic's landing page on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram respectively.

Photograph by @thomaspeschak Baitballs are my underwater photography holy grail. They hard to predict, hard to find and even harder to photograph well. Over the past decade I have been fortunate enough to document three extraordinary baitball predator events. All of them occurred off South Africa's Wild Coast during the Sardine Run, including this one where common dolphins, bronze whaler and dusky sharks feast on sardines. #sardinerun #southafrica @saveourseasfoundation @thephotosociety @natgeocreative For a different baitball baitball image follow me @thomaspeschak and check my feed tomorrow.
