Allegedly, Paper may be independent mobile applications, it may be adapted to page the mobile device experiences . According to sources, Facebook may launch the service before the end of January, but the specific time has not been finalized.
It is said, Paper and Flipboard have a lot of similarities. Both are rich media content aggregator, presenting content from the news media like <The New York Times>, <Washington Post> etc. or from contents of Facebook.
Paper may use a very visually appealing “newspaper” format, allowing readers to return to the feeling of the era before the popularity of digital devices.
