Facebook now letting everyone embed posts, even your mom

Now that Facebook has let media outlets try their hand at embedded posts for a few weeks, it’s opened up that door to the rest of us plebeians. Everyone, and yes we mean everyone, can now embed any public Facebook post, complete with images, links, text and hashtags, on to their own site. Your adoring readership may then “like” or hit follow on the source if they’re so inclined. So hey, now anyone can serve as a guerrilla news source the next time a major news organization goes offline. To see what an embedded post looks like, we’ve included one from our Engadget account after the break.

amazon fulfillment center

As the world’s largest online retailer, it’s no surprise that its biggest fulfillment center in Phoenix, Arizona is the size of 28 football fields.

That’s because it’s their goal to have everything anyone wants at anytime. 

Amazon has 80 fulfillment centers in the world to handle all of its orders.

Even though Amazon already has massive operations, it’s still planning to open at least two new fulfillment centers in California over the next year or so.

And with the holiday shopping season in full force, Amazon hired an additional 50,000 employees to help with the expected demand.

Thanks to Imgur user SippingTea’s incredible photos, we have a sense of that this incredible scale actually looks like.

Stacks of shelves line the warehouse




Employees need carts to navigate through the massive amounts of inventory




Hundreds of boxes full of products cover the floor
