How to embed a FaceBook video on a web page

From Facebook's Embedded Video

"With the embedded video player you can easily add Facebook videos and Facebook live videos to your website. You can use any public video post by a Page or a person as video or live video source."

In the "URL of video" textbox, paste in the url of the public FB video you want to share.

Click the "Get Code" button.

For blogger add a "HTML/JavaScript" Gadget and add the step 2 code. I like to move it to the bottom.

Paste the Step 3 code in the html of your web page.

Javascript and 'undefined'

I like this course on JavaScript. Yesterday, I remembered what I learned about 'undefined'. He recommends not ever setting a variable to 'undefined'. When I searched the project I am working on, I saw many, many cases where it was being set in the jquery and modernizr libraries.

Either way, is it a valuable distinction to know the difference between "is not defined", null and undefined.

If you have an account you can find this lesson after you have logged in by going here.

You can find it in the course overview in the "Execution Contexts and Lexical Environments". The lesson is called "Conceptual Aside: Javascript and 'undefined'"
