Well I’m glad Ms cleared up the pressing questions. No we won’t be forced to link with FB, FB gaming won’t replace the Mixer tab on the console.

I imagine in the future if you are on Instagram and see a Xcloud add, clicking on it will bring you to the App Store to download the Xcloud app.

Mixer tab wont be on the console... because mixer will be gone in a few weeks time.
It (the tab) will be replaced with other streaming services, ei. Twitch, facebook gameing, youtube ect.

"I imagine in the future if you are on Instagram and see a Xcloud add, clicking on it will bring you to the App Store to download the Xcloud app."

^ that thinking is too small scale.
If that was the whole point of it, they wouldn't have closed down mixer for it. 
Basically your "I imagine in the future" is small stuff thinking, that cant be right, it makes too little sense to be how this ends up.

It won't be replaced, it's going.

"If that was the whole point of it, they wouldn't have closed down mixer for it."

Mixer was a failing service, nothing Microsoft was doing worked, so they shut it down and partnered with Facebook, Amazon/Google aren't an option as they are direct competitors in the cloud service.

Klob made a mock-up of what the link could look like.
