Following this update by Facebook, Google has launched their own version of fast loading web-pages that is referred to as Accelerated Mobile Pages. It is due to AMP that now you can experience faster loading time of WebPages from partner publishers while you search for news on Google.

The new SDK of Facebook will have an extension that allows the publishers to create content in the instant articles, Accelerated Mobile Pages, and Apple News Format. This new feature rolled out by Facebook has also enabled unique customization options.
This new update has been marked with an interesting and unexpected move from Facebook that is previously pushing its own instant articles format as the only fast loading article format allowed on the network.
With this update, Facebook is hoping to address the problem of creation of multiple versions of the same content to share in different platforms.
Thus, this new Facebook update has come up with many new features that make the customization of content immensely flawless. You can experience faster loading times, when reading articles on Facebook or Google AMP after this update by Facebook.
