Instant Articles had previously been only available to selected publishers. A year later though, Facebook has released some very interesting stats on the feature:

  • – Instant Articles generate 20% more click-throughs than regular links
  • – Users who clicked through to an Instant Article are 70% less likely to abandon the article
  • – Instant Articles get shared 30% more often than normal web links on Facebook

Facebook had also announced that an official WordPress plugin will be released, automatically giving easy access to Instant Articles to over 25% of publishers worldwide. We have not yet found this plugin online, but it should be coming very soon.
