So if you have been following Washington Post on Facebook and still try to find it on Facebook app, you will be relocated to

--> And it is not only the WP, but alos many other leading newspapers like the Guardian which also announced Thursday that  it would no longer display articles in its Facebook app; instead, it would redirect readers to its website after clicking on a headline in the app.
