The relentless stream of Facebook content is about to get curated into a magazine-style reader: Paper. Think of it as a merging of Time magazine and Facebook — or a social media-specific Flipboard — giving you full-frame images, full-screen autoplay videos, posts from friends, and curated posts from editors who are experts in the fields of tech, food, science, and more.
Enhanced storytelling is the driving concept behind the new app, and developers aim to make surfing Facebook a more visually appealing experience. You can fully customize Paper, choosing from over a dozen other sections to browse while your news feed remains the backbone of the app.
This influx of original content is sure to bring smaller publications to light and blogs from around the Internet to the palm of your hands. Paper is the first product from Facebook Creative Labs, which has brought a beating heart to this global website.
