Washington: Facebook has reportedly updated its social news reader app `Paper,` with features for sharing content and a downloadable link for the app.
The Facebook Paper update has added new options to share articles by text message, email or Facebook message that by default include a ` Shared from Paper` link, prompting more users to download the app.
According to Tech Crunch, the social networking giant has also added the ability to mute the app`s sound effects, and create stories in languages that use multi-stage input, including Chinese, Japanese and Korean.
Although the app was launched on February 3rd, it hasn`t managed to stay near the top of the app charts.
The Paper app started strong as No. 2 in the Apple App Store , but ultimately trickled down to the current No. 290 of all US apps.
The report said that the new sharing options that include download links could help boost its numbers.
