RumorTT: Facebook working on a Flipboard-style mobile reading application

RumorTT: Flipboard fans unite! Facebook reportedly working on a Flipboard-style mobile reading app

I was a big Flipboard fan, that was however, until I found Feedly. But, it looks like Facebook are working on a new dedicated story browser which is going by the codename or "Reader", according to the Wall Street Journal.


There aren't many details on Reader just yet, but it is reportedly important enough that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is closely involved. The social network aren't talking about their plans, but there is more truth to this rumor than usual as the social network recently added hashtag support as a "first step" toward helping users track topics.

This would make sense, if in the near future they do release a mobile reading app, hashtags are a perfect way to let users track important and current topics.
