|Paper, Facebook's New Storytelling App
By: Jessica Cherok
Facebook has debuted a new app, Paper. The app is designed to make it easier for you to peruse the content on your Facebook feed.
According to Facebook’s introduction of Paper, “Your Paper is made of stories and themed sections, so you can follow your favorite interests. The first section in Paper is your Facebook News Feed, where you’ll enjoy inspiring new designs for photos, videos, and longer written posts. You can customize Paper with a choice of more than a dozen other sections about various themes and topics — from photography and sports to food, science and design. Each section includes a rich mix of content from emerging voices and well-known publications.”
Facebook has been continuously working toward creating a better, more immersive experience. Paper was created by Facebook Creative Labs, who has been tasked with coming up with apps that better connect and share information on Facebook.
Some of Paper’s features include:
Paper became available February 3 for use on Facebook.
Everything responds to your touch so you can pick up or thumb through stories with simple, natural movements
You can tilt your phone to explore high-resolution panoramic photos from corner to corner, and see faces and other important details up close
Fullscreen autoplay videos come to life and bring you deep into the action
Beautifully detailed covers make it easy to spot articles from trusted publishers and decide what to read or watch. Articles unfold in the app and appear fullscreen for a focused reading experience
When you're ready to tell your own story, you know exactly what your post or photo will look like because you see a live preview before you share it
