Homeland, full episode, in your Facebook newsfeed confirms FB's development to a media house

You need social networks to run a newsfeed, and Facebook has turned the newsfeed to Social Media, the biggest Flipboard anyone could imagine. So I guess the times when we describe FB as a social network should be over. With Instant Articles, Suggested Video and such they are showing a clear orientation towards becoming a media aggregator while user to user communication moves away to messengers and smaller groups. One more proof: watch the first episode of season 5, Homeland, in full length, without geoblocking, IN your Facebook newsfeed. Would love to get the stats. One day, a producer may not need a TV station to distribute their contents.
