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.

Susan -- The app is only available for iOS right now, no web capabilities 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.)

Of course, buying Instagram helped a bunch!

Re: Will you try it?
Thomas, 

Twitter works differently than FB. At least I don't don't use Twitter in the same way. It's not just about social news curation. It's also about who you are sharing those news with, or if you are sharing at all.

New sections for the mobile app only?
Kristin, 

Do you know if those 12 sections will be only available on the iOS app, or the sections will be part of the regular FB as well? I didn't find the answer to this anywhere. :/

Re: Concerning
Pulse is another good comparison, though I disagree that it should be viewed as a sign of concern or that the company feels threatened. They're competing. Facebook has been insanely successful at monetizing mobile, and this is another way to do just that.
