Re: Facebook Paper vs Flipboard?
Ah. it feeds based on what friends post. So it is time to dump those friends who post all the cat stories? This seems like a downside to me compared to flipboard...i dont think your friends are necessarily your best news curators.

Will you try it?
The big question is whether Paper's social element will be a deterrent or a draw for users. It could be a pro for people who value that level of personalization and customization, but Facebook's past with privacy and data collection could scare away others.

Readers: Will you try Paper? What's drawing you to or away from it?

Re: Facebook Paper vs Flipboard?
The social aspect of Paper is key, and it's what sets it apart from Flipboard. The stories that you see will be determined by both an algorithm -- which takes into account what your friends are posting and sharing -- and "editors" that Facebook has hired to determine what content is particularly worthy of being featured. Both apps are designed quite well and have great UIs -- we'll have to see whether this social element is a pro or con for users.

Facebook Paper vs Flipboard?
Kristin, what, if anything, does Facebook Paper offer readers that Flipboard does not?
