Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night thinking to yourself, “Man, I wish Twitter was easier to read.” Have you ever caught yourself wandering through the grocery store only to abruptly pause, reflect, and ponder a thought such as, “Facebook should be more newspaper like.” Well my friend, your prayers have been answered.
Paper.li is a fun site that attractively digests all the crazy commotion occurring regarding your Twitter or Facebook account connections. It then takes those conversations and imports them into a online newspaper like website. Here is a screen shot for you.
As you can see, the site displays news items that have been pulled from your profiles connections. This list of updates from either your Facebook or Twitter account depends on the service you used to populate the Paper.li account (the options being Facebook or Twitter :).
Paper.li also provides you with a cool little table of contents widget to add to your site. You can find an example of this below.
Paper.li just brought it’s daily news aggregator to Facebook today. This is big news because now your Facebook profile updates can be scrapped and displayed in this newspaper style format. This will make your Facebook posts, and many other peoples posts completely public online. According to Mashable, “It doesn’t matter if you’re friends with an individual; if that person’s content is open to the web, Paper.li can scrape it. If the content is sealed behind Facebook privacy settings, it will be unavailable to your daily aggregation.” Might want to check your privacy settings again, huh?
