❭❭ Facebook and the media: united, they attack the web

An interesting analysis of what the new Facebook Instant Articles mean for the web

"A few media websites have made a deal with Facebook to present their articles within Facebook’s iOS app instead of on their own websites. Apparently, it’s all the web’s fault. Although, it should be mentioned that Instant Articles are published only on Facebook’s iOS app and degrade gracefully into links to the media site’s original website elsewhere, so it isn’t nearly the wholesale assimilation of everything everywhere that people present it to be. Commentators online report this news alternately as armageddon or the second coming."
