Facebook’s Paper App Adds New Article Sharing Feature [Video]



One month after being launched, Paper – stories from Facebook has received its first significant update.

The addition allows users to share articles via Facebook Messages, text message, or email, as well as create stories in languages that use multi-stage input, including Chinese, Japanese and Korean.

There’s also the possibility of turning off sound effects to “enjoy the silence,” alongside a variety of other improvements designed to make Paper more reliable.

For those who haven’t yet used it, Paper is well worth trying out — being very different from Facebook’s existing apps. Resembling Flipboard, Paper gives you a grid of stories which you can flip through to find the ones you’re most interested in. As well as including news from your Facebook news feed it also incorporates news from traditional outlets, such as TIME Magazine, the Huffington Post, and the New York Times.

The new version of Facebook’s Paper is available in the App Store for free. It is optimized for iPhone and iPod touch, running iOS 7.0 or later.
