Facebook creates news reader app, dubs it ‘Paper’
Bored with your Facebook newsfeed? Feel like you’re missing great content because you’re not subscribed to savvy sources? Help is on the way.
The social giant has created a new app designed to help you stay current on stories that interest you. Facebook has dubbed the app Paper, and it will help you “explore and share stories from friends and the world around you.”
According to the social giant, Paper is made of themed sections, which will allow you to pick and choose topics that interest you — from photography and sports to food and science. Content from trusted publications and ’emerging voices’ will be included, giving users a variety of authors to choose from.
Paper is the first product of Facebook Creative Labs, an initiative to create new apps for people who want to connect and share.
Paper launches in the United States on Feb. 3 on the iPhone. See a sneak peek here.
