Facebook Updates Paper App With New Features
[ Social Media]

Facebook has released a new update for its Paper news reader app.

It will now let users share articles via Facebook Messages, text message or email, and turn sound effects off. It also now supports languages that use multi-stage input, including Chinese, Japanese and Korean.

The app was first released on February 3rd, and is only available for iPhone in the U.S. for the time being.

“Your Paper is made of stories and themed sections, so you can follow your favorite interests,” Mark Zuckerberg said of the app when he first announced it. “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.”

Here’s the iTunes description:

Explore and share stories from friends and the world in immersive designs and fullscreen, distraction-free layouts. Paper includes your Facebook News Feed and sections about your favorite topics.

As Josh Constine at TechCrunch points out, the app’s sharing feature includes the following URL: fb.com/trypaper, which could get more people to give the app a try.
