How to Embed Facebook Reviews on Any Website Automatically

Quick steps to embed Facebook reviews on your website, in seconds.

Online reputation is one of the top 3 assets that we all need to nurture.

The way a company discovers, generates, understands, and responds to reviews, ratings, and comments about its products, services, and the company overall, will differentiate them as a winner or a loser.

You agree, right?! Customer feedback is a serious asset that you will need to find a way to manage. It is fundamental to building power with users and nurturing their trust.

Most companies ask the most engaged customers to send them a few kind words they will later display on a website.

“We’ve done that too but realized that these testimonials or reviews are not a fixed content and we can not just rely on 3 testimonials that will forever slide on our website.” – Nikola Bojkov, CEO at EmbedSocial
