How to publish with Apple News, Facebook Instant Articles, Google AMP, Medium and Bloom


Since Multimedia Journalism edition two launched in October 2015, a whole raft of new news-publishing opportunities have come onto the market.

 They include offerings from the big players - Apple, Facebook and Google - plus some from lesser known ones.

 All are designed to make the mobile web work better, and to help publishers take advantage of much faster page loading speeds, a much better user experience, great design, and far greater reach.

 So,  as a student journalist, should you be publishing on one or more of these platforms?

 And, if you should, how do you go about getting your content on them?

 All five of these platforms have WordPress plugins associated with them that simplify and streamline the publishing process, enabling you to direct content to them from your Wordpress site - the sites we created in Chapters 2 and 8 of MMJ.

 As ever, this tuition is not meant to stand alone - it is a supplement to all we covered in the print and ebook textbook.
