Instagram and Facebook oEmbed API to stop working, what about Onebox?

On the 24th of October the unauthenticated oEmbed API from Facebook and Instagram will stop working. They will require authentication to fetch oEmbed objects.

Are there any consequences for Onebox? I couldn’t find any changes in the GitHub repo regarding this yet.

A good point needs to be addressed. You have to provide API keys like for rendering Twitter embeds going forward.

The Facebook oEmbed endpoints require either an App Access Token (recommended) or Client Access Token.
