How to Embed Facebook Photos in Your Blog

If you want to embed Facebook photo album or pictures on your blog or website, here is an official tool from Facebook which proves to be useful. And, you don’t need to download Facebook photos to your computer, transfer them one by one to an FTP server and after adding the images in your blog.  In this article, I will explain to you how to embed Facebook photos in your blog or website.

You can actually embed a particular photo from any of your Facebook photo albums directly on your blog, without downloading anything. Facebook allows a large number of lifestreaming widgets and one of them is the photo sharing identification, which can be found here.


Click on the above link, pick a format for the Facebook photo tool and you are done. You will be given an embed code, copy it and paste in the source of your site or blog and your selected photos will display on your site. This badge will only work if your Photo album security settings are not private.

Since the photo badge is rendered in HTML form, the gadget will work with Blogger, WordPress, TypePad, Posterous and Tumblr websites. The only shortcoming is that you can’t pick specific photos to be displayed as a widget; Facebook will show you only your recent photo uploads in the badge.

Anyway, this is one of the perfect ways to share Facebook photo album to the world. However, if you need to specifically share a specific Facebook photos to anybody and need to embed only the selected photos from the Facebook photo album in your blogs, there are two choices. The first one is – this tool gives you a chance to create a PowerPoint presentation from Facebook albums.

Simply create the presentation and upload the album to, then embed the SlideShare presentation in your blog. The second option is using Showzey – a third-party tool which can collect photos from Facebook, Flickr, Picasa and other photo sharing sites in one place. The service allows users to share all these albums openly, with anyone.
