Facebook Paper Got Its First Big Update Today, But Is Anyone Using It?
By Anthony Gonzales Posted in News, Software on April 21, 2014

Here’s a shocker: Facebook’s first major update to Paper , its socially-augmented news-reading app , makes it more social.

Specifically, the app’s 1.1 update now allows users to comment on posts using photos, added birthday and event notifications and tacked on an unread-message counter to help users keep track of Group activity.


Facebook says that users of its mobile newsreader app “Paper” are using it a lot.

The social network on Friday said the average person who uses the app, which launched in January as the first product developed by its Creative Labs team, looks at a whopping 80 stories a day.

But Facebook has given no indication of how many people have downloaded the app.

Paper includes many of Facebook’s traditional features, like News Feed and messaging, but also acts as an aggregator.
