Re: Facebook Paper vs Flipboard?
@Joe -- Facebook has actually been really successful in monetizing mobile. In its earnings call this week it reported that mobile ad sales rose to 53% of revenues -- Facebook's first-ever $1 billion-plus mobile ad revenue quarter.

Re: Concerning
LinkedIn Pulse is an interesting move. When you look at Pulse and the Activity feed, it's all about keeping people active on the site beyond just popping in to update what is, ultimately, just a form of online resumé. LinkedIn need people to be on the site regularly in order to make it more of a hub, all be it a hub with a work focus. I actually think it has been quite successful, and far from being desperate, I just see it as another offering to those who want it. Certainly I engage more with LinkedIn than I ever used to, and I post content there when I would not have done before, and - more importantly - that content gets responses.

As for FB Paper, I'll wait and see on that one. I'm not convinced yet.

Re: Facebook Paper vs Flipboard?
Yeah, but the big question about Facebook and mobile is monetization.  They've been having trouble with ad revenue for mobile.  Perhaps Facebook Paper is their solution to that.

Re: Will you try it?
I actually find social news curation easier on FB than on Twitter... You can share links and posts only with yourself or certain lists and it's easier to look back on them.  On Twitter, you can favorite or RT posts, but that's about it.  (Of course, this is why hashtags are so important on Twitter.)

Re: "Facebook has been insanely successful at monetizing mobile, and this is another way to do just that."

Of course, buying Instagram helped a bunch!

Social is a Business Imperative
Social is a Business Imperative
The use of social media for a host of business purposes is rising. Indeed, social is quickly moving from cutting edge to business basic. Organizations that have so far ignored social - either because they thought it was a passing fad or just didn’t have the resources to properly evaluate potential use cases and products - must start giving it serious consideration.
