Undoubtedly, the news of the week have been Facebook’s Instant Articles which allow faster loading of articles, more interactivity and better content consumption on iOS devices. But it seems like this update has other hidden features as well.
One of them is the ability to share on other social networks – Twitter included. As VentureBeat noticed, with the new Instant Articles feature, users have the option to share their articles on Pinterest and Twitter. Before, without Instant Articles, it was certainly not possible to share Facebook content on other social networks.
