This method is the easier one but has its cons. The post embedded by this method will have an unnecessary padding to its right as shown in Fig. 3. The height and width of the post also cannot be altered. To dodge these issues we can follow method 2.

Method 2

The top right corner of a Facebook post contains a down arrow symbol. Select the Embed option (Fig. 4) from the drop down menu that appears.
