Optimize Your WordPress Blog For Facebook Instant Articles

It should be a of absolutely no surprise that a majority of people consuming the content you and I share is done on mobile devices, especially through the Facebook app. The proof is in the pudding and data shows this to be the case. That’s why it’s so important that content publishers on WordPress prepare to optimize their content using Facebook’s Instant Articles. I’ll embed a video below that showcases the benefits that Instant Articles promises and today Facebook and Automattic—the company that owns WordPress—announced a new plugin that will enable your published blog content to be viewed as Instant Articles in the Facebook mobile app when it opens up to the public in April.

As of yet, the plugin is not available via the WordPress Plugin Directory but the ZIP file is available for download via GitHub. Installation is very easy but you may want to consult with someone more knowledgeable or just RTFM if you’re up for an adventure. :)
