Facebook Paper

There’s an acronym for what Facebook is attempting to resolve here: FOMO. Or, “Fear of missing out.” Using the standard Facebook News Feed plus other news sources you choose, Facebook’s just announced app, https://facebook.com/paper” target=”_blank”>Paper, recreates an immersive, horizontally scrolling summary of all the news and updates you need to have all in one neat package. The app is a new stand-alone option to the original Facebook app, that works a bit like a feed reader (Feedly, for example) combined with Instapaper; but it pushes updates to you from your friends and other Facebook-algorithm-curated articles and photos to your screen, organized by type. The app was created by Facebook’s own internal innovation team, https://facebook.com/labs” target=”_blank”>Creative Labs, who act as the brand’s own internal start-up by enhancing user experiences without overloading the original app.  Paper launches to everyone in the U.S. on February 3rd, the day before Facebook’s 10th birthday.
