VideoPress supports inline video playback on Facebook, extending the reach of your content inside the application hundreds of millions of people use to share blog posts and videos every day. Blog posts with a single VideoPress video include special Facebook Share markup to easily expose your video’s thumbnail and Flash player information when a link to your post appears in a status update. The same special markup also improves the visibility of your content in Google search and by Yahoo! Search results.
Links to blog posts with video receive special treatment in the Facebook news feed. A small thumbnail image appears alongside your post’s title and excerpt, encouraging playback. Status updates with video receive special handling by Facebook’s news feed ranking algorithms, increasing the chances your post will be displayed on more news pages.
VideoPress supports direct playback from the Facebook news feed. Any Facebook user can click your video thumbnail to view the full video inside the context of the shared item. A link to your full blog post is also just a click away.
WordPress.com recently added Facebook Publicize the ability to automatically publish new posts from your blog into your Facebook news stream. VideoPress includes special video markup with every new Facebook Publicize post. Your readers will see your video details, thumbnail and full video player directly within their Facebook news feed.
