Google Posts

Google now has a notice when you add Google Posts in Google My Business that those posts can appear not just on Google properties but third-party sites. Claire Carlile posted a screenshot of Google notifying her of this and asked on Twitter "which third party sites would posts appear on?"

As you can see, Google is notifying us that "your posts will appear on Google services across the web, like Maps and Search, and on third-party sites." How do they get on third-party sites? Can people embed them? Is Google licensing this data out to Mapquest? What is going on here?

I am not sure how big of a deal this is, but I am curious what third-party sites is getting their hands on this to display it.
