Facebook to Produce Own News Service

January 19, 2014

Facebook may finally be about to launch a news reading service built for mobile devices.

Facebook watchers have said the company has already decided on a name for its app: Paper.

It will most likely work like other aggregators of news stories by providing shared news stories from publications like the New York Times and live updates from Facebook users.

The project has been under construction for some time but was slowed by design updates and other interface issues.

In 2011, Facebook bought startup company Push Pop Press, which had elements that Facebook said would adapt well to its own products.
