The Internet is buzzing with news of Facebook Instant Articles. What has once been the slowest feature on the social media platform -- but also the most widely used -- the company decided to make the reading and sharing experience not only more efficient, but also richer. Facebook Instant Articles boast a slew of interactive features allowing publishers to bring their stories to life in new ways.

The social media platform writes, "Watch auto-play videos come alive as you scroll through stories. Explore interactive maps, listen to audio captions, and even like and comment on individual parts of an article in-line." Facebook Instant Articles will launch with nine prestigious partners: The New York Times, National Geographic, BuzzFeed, NBC, The Atlantic, The Guardian, BBC News, Spiegel and Bild.
