Facebook Paper got its first big update today, but is anyone using it?

by John_A

Here’s a shocker: Facebook’s first major update to Paper, its socially-augmented news-reading app, makes it more social. Specifically, the app’s 1.1 update now allows users to comment on posts using photos, added birthday and event notifications and tacked on an unread-message counter to help users keep track of Group activity. Facebook hasn’t fiddled with the user interface much, but content from Bloomberg, Mashable, Popular Science and six other news sources have been gussied up with new, custom article covers. Oh, and the company says its made the app run a little faster, too. It’s not a game changing update, but anything’s better than forgetting your spouse’s birthday — assuming Facebook’s main app didn’t already remind you. Has Paper found its way to your home screen? We’re running a quick poll: skip past the break to drop in a vote or leave us a note.
