Feature request: embedding social media posts

Post by kimson » Thu Aug 23, 2018 3:23 am

Could this be done?

Most of the image hosting services seem to be either flaky or infested with ads and all kinds of weird shit, or both, whereas at least the giants of social media (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, whathaveyou) seem to be somewhat reliable and predictable in their actions. If you could embed social media content here, you'd probably only need to publish/embed your images once and not worry about the service going sour the next week.

It also seems like gear manufacturers are mostly doing product reveals on social media these days. Allowing embedding would make discussion a lot easier.

And yes, I know there's a thread about inserting images, but I think this one is a separate discussion.

DISCLAIMER: I hate social media just as much as the next guy, but in this case it'd make the use of this fine forum a lot easier. Also: it's already been done on TGP.
