    Hi everyone...

    It's really easy to embed Images, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Video posts so they embed properly (the whole post/video). Ok, the background music is horrendous on these instruction videos I made (so feel free to turn the volume down!)

    Image Embedding

    I hope this video might help with embedding images - it includes examples of how to embed an image from the web, from Flickr and uploading your own. If you upload your own images (the third option) , make sure you own the copyright to them.



    Video Embedding:

    For video, you just paste web address (URL) and submit your post. The video is automatically embedded as a player. This works for all popular video sites such as Youtube, Vimeo, Vine etc.



    Instagram Embedding:

    This is easy once you know how to get the web address of the individual Instagram post. This video shows you how. Once you've got it, just paste the link and the Instagram post will be embedded in it's full splendour!



    Twitter Embedding

    Like Instagram, it's just knowing how to get the web address of the individual Tweet. The following video shows you how to do it.



    Facebook Embedding

    This isn't obvious but you just click on the date of the Facebook post and it opens up the post in it's own window. You then paste the web address into your discuss.tennis post and it embeds. This video explains everything.



    Once you've done these once or twice, it becomes second nature!

    Share some great social media with fellow tennis fans.

    It is indeed. It means even beginners can share the fun stuff so it's not only the more technically minded who can have a good time with others using video as well as words.
