Facebook, one of the most popular social network sites in the world, is constantly looking out for ways to reinvent themselves so that they will not be left behind, but rather, be a pacesetter in the industry. There have been rumors going around touting that Facebook is working on a mobile reading app, and this evening itself, you can say that the volume of such rumors have increased by a considerable margin. According to Wall Street Journal claims that Facebook has been working over the previous year on the social network has spent the past year working on a dedicated story browser that has been given the codename Reader.
Reader would bring around articles in a kind of interface which is somewhat similar to what you would see on Flipboard. Additional details concerning the Reader project remains scarce, of course, but there are also whispers going around that even Mark Zuckerberg himself is closely involved, adding additional “weight” to the story on the significance of Reader. We do hope to be able to catch hold of the app sooner rather than later. After all, this is how we roll, no?
