New Tagging And Hashtag Tools Welcome Facebook Paper Users

June 16, 2014
Facebook’s Paper app for iPhone has received another update. Version 1.2 includes a “bunch of features you’ve asked us for,” according to the app’s iTunes page. Among the new features is the ability to edit your profile picture and cover photo. You can also see who’s tagged in a photo, simply by tapping on the arrow and choosing View Photo Tags. Paper 1.2 also includes new mentions and hashtag tools. With the first, you can now tag a friend to let them know about a story. Facebook has also made it easier to let specific people know about what you’ve said or shared. Hashtags, as they should be, are now tappable, so that you can see all the related posts. A new trending section gives you a real-time view of the topics people are talking about on Paper. Just tap the Trending label at the top of the story in the section to see related stories from other sources. Other new features include:
  • Tilt to explore all your photos: Now you can zoom in on any photo to view it fullscreen and tilt the phone to explore every detail.
  • Copy text: Now you can tap-and-hold text to copy it from a post you're reading. Then paste and share the text wherever you like.
  • Change your audience after you post: We always want to help you share your stories with just the right people. Just tap the name of the audience to change between sharing publicly or with just your friends.
  • Performance and speed: We’ve been making improvements so stories and photos show up even faster. Enjoy!
Paper's 1.1 update launched in April. The free Paper app is available for download on the App Store.
