Facebook Group (or Any Website) on Blogger

Someone (+Jim Mitchell) was very happy with my post about how to put a Twitter Feed on Blogger, and challenged me with his own question -- can you do this with a Facebook Group or Page? The simple answer seems to be yes, but there are some things you need to consider.

Adding a website to a blog post can be done this way.
First I'll go over how you actually make any website appear on Blogger. I borrowed this piece of code from my friends at Getting Tricky with Wikis<iframe frameborder="1" height="600" scrolling="auto"src="https://sites.google.com/a/kis.or.kr/phoenix-film-festival/" width="100%"></iframe> If you paste this bit of HTML code in the HTML section of the post with the website address, it will make the website appear on your blog in the post. You simply need to copy & paste the code and then replace the URL I have used here with your own. This is a great work around if you want to post something that doesn't have an embed code for you to use, but is on a website. Pretty cool, right?

But with a social media site like Facebook, you need to consider your privacy settings. I believe the group would have to be open to the public. I tried the groups that I am a member of and none of them would appear on my blog, but they are all closed groups. You would need to ask yourself some questions about what type of privacy you want to have and then experiment to see if you can make the website appear in a blog post.

You can also add the code on a Page and make a version of the website on your blog.
You can add another website to your blog as a Page with this method. Step 1.
