The posts you have shared publicly can be seen by everyone, even outside from Facebook. Most of your public posts can be embed by anyone to any blog.

Let you have a Facebook page associated with your blog, and you have shared any interesting thing with your fans. Now, you want to share it with your blog readers then simply you can show this Facebook post of your page onto your website by the given embed code. Once you embed the code to your website, it will show up with a like button of your Facebook page that will lead to adding fans for page, and also the readers can like and share the post directly from your blog.
If you have embed the code associated with your Facebook profile, the readers can directly follow you from your blog (if you have allowed followers).
P.S: If the readers want to comment or click on a hashtag on your embedded post, once they click on the comment or hashtag, they will be redirect to the original post.

Embedded Facebook Posts for Advance Users

Let see an example, the Facebook embed code for one of my status update is,
<div id="fb-root"></div> <script>(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));</script>
<div class="fb-post" data-href="https://www.facebook.com/shadab.mohammad/posts/10202215683705979" data-width="466"><div class="fb-xfbml-parse-ignore"><a href="https://www.facebook.com/shadab.mohammad/posts/10202215683705979">Post</a> by <a href="https://www.facebook.com/shadab.mohammad">Mohammad Shadab</a>.</div></div>
Facebook has divided the embed code into three parts. JavaScript, HTML5 and simple clickbale link (In case, HTML does not show correctly)
It may be happen that you have already installed the JavaScript before. To confirm it, go to your template HTML code, search with some peace of code mention above (mostly this code is placed below the <body tag). If you do not find any code, then you need to add the JavaScript code once in your HTML template. After that, you don't need to add JavaScript each times you paste any code of Facebook embed code, like button or Facebook comments.

Now, go to your HTML template editor, search with "<body" without quote, and just below <body> tag paste the following code,
      window.fbAsyncInit = function() {
          appId      : '{your-app-id}',
          xfbml      : true,
          version    : 'v2.0'

      (function(d, s, id){
         var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
         if (d.getElementById(id)) {return;}
         js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id;
         js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js";
         fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);
       }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));
Now,change {your-app-id} with your Facebook page app ID. You can get your app ID by going to Facebook Developers page. That is it!

Now, you have installed the JavaScript. You can now only choose the HTML5 part of the Facebook embed code. i.e.,
<div class="fb-post" data-href="https://www.facebook.com/shadab.mohammad/posts/10202215683705979" data-width="466"></div>
You can also use XFBML code instead of HTML5. i.e.,
<fb:post href="https://www.facebook.com/shadab.mohammad/posts/10202215683705979" width="468px"></fb:post>
Just you have to change the URL of your posts. You can get the URL of any posts by clicking on the date or time around the share visibility option.
