Four examples of a blog post display on mobile (Instant Article)

Instant Articles by Facebook, created specifically for mobile, are said to offer the advantages of an attractive layout and fast loading time, especially with images and video. On this WordPress blog, I easily installed a plugin called LH Instant Articles, by Peter Shaw. It was highly rated and the descriptions and explanations were simple. At the bottom of this post is text from the description.

Facebook browser Chrome mobile Chrome mobile-friendly Safari ios

Only the Chrome mobile-friendly browser displays the ext and layout as I had expected, but there is no image! My friend Tun sent these these to me, and he is a great IT guy;teaches it in fact. SO I need to ask him the difference between Chrome mobile and Chrome mobile friendly. And thanks also to Stuart Rankin.

Here is the text from the LH Description...

I wanted to thank Peter Shaw, but WordPress.org doesn't acknowledge my password...and Peter's blog requires me to log in and set up an account...Peter, if you see this, THANKS! It works great, though I wonder why it displays so differently...
