PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Facebook has rolled out an expansion of its Instant Articles project which offers faster-loading pages to media companies who agree to publish directly to the social network.
Facebook announced its Instant Articles program is launching on mobile devices.
Starting today, people will see a lightning bolt on the top right corner of some stories shared in News Feed. The lightning bolt indicates it’s an Instant Article. The company says when you tap the story, it loads ten times faster than a standard mobile web article.
Facebook also listed dozens of news outlets that will publish on Instant Articles on the network. The newcomers include Business Insider, Mashable, Fox Sports, People and CBS News.
The social network also announced that Instant Articles for Android will launch later this year, with a public beta available today.
