Facebook Paper app_newswazir.com

The world’s most used social network is rethinking storytelling, announcing Paper Thursday morning — a new mobile app that complete revises how you access the site. Facebook users currently access through the News Feed on the site or the mobile app, essentially an unformatted, unindexed stream of data from friends, colleagues and anyone they follow. Paper app will compile that content into sections to let you follow your favorite interests — just like a newspaper. Now one 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.

Paper also overhauls the design, letting you thumb sideways through carefully designed “cards” for each post, rather than vertically through a stream of content.

” Michael Matas, Paper’s product design lead, told the site.“It’s no fun to make a bunch of great stuff if no one ever sees it.”

The design somewhat resembles the flip-book format of other social aggregation apps such as Flipboard, and is the result of years of development, re/code said.

Facebook said one can tilt your phone to explore high-resolution panoramic photos from corner to corner. Fullscreen videos will automatically play.You’ll know exactly what your post or photo will look like thanks to live previews.

Facebook said the app will be available from 3 February .
