On February 3, Facebook will launch Paper, a new platform that looks like it could sink Flipboard’s ship. Though the platform is really a fusion of both Flipboard and Facebook, aesthetically and functionally it surpasses both platforms. Facebook’s recently launched preview suggest that Paper will revolutionize mobile storytelling. Dieter Bohn of the Verge notes that “Facebook has hired a team of content curators to pick stories for you in one of a dozen or so categories ranging from basic news to cute animals.” Additionally, you can post your own stories, pictures, and videos within a composition screen. Bohn is clear that he believes this platform is not designed to replace Facebook at any level, but serve as an aesthetic content curation app – a rich, visual form of mobile storytelling. Watch the video and let me know what you think? What do you like most about the interface, experience, functionality, or curation?
