But have you heard about everything that the Facebook Paper app can really do?

Meet the Facebook Paper App, the Latest Facebook Innovation for Social Media Mobile Use

Facebook Paper is marked by its ability to take your newsfeed and transform it into a striking set of scrolling screens that makes it easier than ever to read information. When you download the app, you will be sent through a tutorial that also shows you just how easy it is to customize your Paper app with your interests while still exploring posts from your friends and more.

Of course, a Facebook social media app just wouldn’t be the same without basic functionality through your own profile itself. As a result, you can still use this app to write statuses, post on your friend’s pages, view notifications, and send Facebook messages.

In short, the Facebook Paper app can be best understood as Facebook, elevated.

Using the Facebook Paper App is Simple

As you might suspect, the Paper app was developed with you in mind. This means that each function is intended to make use simple, direct, and straightforward.

After you customize your feed through the opening tutorial, scrolling through your favorite news and other posts is simple. To explore more stories, you simply swipe to the right on your home screen. When you find something that you would like to explore further, you can then swipe up to see more. After you’re done, all you have to do is swipe back down to get back to your home screen and continue exploring.

Swiping down on your home page gives you access to your own profile, along with the new ability to preview a post before pushing it live. Tilt your phone to explore your photos in high-resolution detail, and see just how much different your Facebook experience can be through the Paper app.
