Embed Social Media Posts in a Survey

If you want to embed social media posts into a survey, all you need to do is grab the appropriate embed code from their site and paste it into a Text/Media element. We'll go over how to work with Twitter, Facebook and Instagram here. Other sites will likely have similar steps so use this as a guide for other social media sites as well!

Twitter

To embed a tweet, you'll need to find the tweet on twitter.com. Once you've found it, click on the three dots underneath the tweet and select Embed Tweet from the dropdown menu.

Embedded Tweet Example

Please note that the formatting inside the Build tab won't reflect how the tweet will actually display in the live survey. To see it in action, Preview the page or look at an active link.

Facebook

To embed a Facebook post, you need to first know that it is only possible to embed posts from Pages, not from Profiles. What is the difference? A Profile is a personal, non-commercial page and simply does not have the embed option. A Page is a commercial page for businesses and organizations and features the embed option for any post.

Once you've found the post you want to embed, click the downward facing arrow in the upper right hand corner of the post and select Embed Post.
