WASHINGTON (AFP) - Facebook on Thursday unveiled its new app called "Paper," which serves as an online newspaper for viewing and sharing articles and other content from a smartphone.

"Paper makes storytelling more beautiful with an immersive design and fullscreen, distraction-free layouts," Facebook said in a blog post announcing the new service.

"We've also made it easier to craft and share beautiful stories of your own."

The app, the first product from Facebook Creative Labs, will be available February 3 for iPhone users, Facebook said.
