What do you like best?

The idea behind paper.li is wonderful. It's really easy to create online newspapers on various topics and control content flow. The update of overall UX lately makes it even much more cool. Social media integration features are made rather easy-to-use and content picks are mainly very nice and good looking. Newsletter feature is also very good. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The lack of SEO features like unique URLs, or maybe at least hints on how to improve SEO rankings for such online newspapers. It's not looking very professional when outdated posts from paper.li on Twitter lose the pictures quite fast. You can have it without a picture or not working URL in just a few days after the bot submits it to your Twitter. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Content marketing made easily with paper.li. It's useful for business blogging and digital marketing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Pulls content based off criteria relevant to your business offerings. Can add sources, keywords, etc. to refine the type of curated content. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Can be a little cumbersome looking. The free features limit the design and ease of use. The ads are a little annoying for people visiting the paper's page. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Making improvements as time goes by. Hopefully they broaden their ability to stream across more networks and add additional customization (whitelisting, layouts, design, etc.) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Curated content that's super easy to pull from. The automatic tweeting of the issues is nice and adds to engagement online. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I had a free Paper.li account for a year, and liked the way it aggregated news from competitors in a particular niche. But then I realised this would be useful to sales and marketing folk across my industry. So I upgraded to Professional and created http://low-code-daily.com Very easy to do.

I had a few questions for the Paper.li help desk and found them excellent. It was refreshing to deal with a support person that really read, understood and answered each question, instead of wasting my time with poorly thought through responses. Every issue dealt with same day by Julia who is excellent!

They even went the extra mile by customising some CSS to improve how my header looked on mobile.

The result - I now have automated daily topical tweets that my followers seem to appreciate. Followers growing daily. Linkedin likewise. And its led to new business inquiries as well.

I can edit the news headlines, add and remove specific articles incredibly quickly. I've been able to refine the articles I aggregate simply by building a Twitter list and "training" Paper.li's search bot with about eight keywords.

Its a news / social media aggregator, so its not for everyone. If you want to focus on just your company's original content this is not the way to go. Having said that I can seed my own blogs posts and Linkedin articles into the news mix with just 2 clicks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Struggled with the banner heading as I didn't like the default font and wanted 2 text colours. But Paper.li support overcame that issue by tweaking the CSS code for me. Beyond the call. Thank you! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Its a simple product and quick to set-up. Just be clear who's content you're seeking to promote. If just your own original content this is probably not the way to go. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating a useful social media output facility, that is generating followers and click throughs to my website. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Sometimes picks up inappropriate content Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Some Twitter users use management software that automatically unfollows inactive accounts. This makes sure I’m never inactive for more than a couple of days. Plus the content engages clients & fellow businesses. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I've been Paper.li earlier adopter and I know they have gone a long way and I love what they have done. With such a simple idea behind it, you can actually use it for lots of purposes: Automatically curate content using a hashtag, curate media, engage your community to contribute, curate (and publicize) your business social media testimonials. You can even hook it up to your Mailchimp account and use it for lead generation. The support is very good as well: They helped me customize the look of my paper completely for free. They have recently launched responsive themes too. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

They need to be doing a better job at showcasing how their features can be used. Most users don't see the potential. I think they need more user cases showing different ways brands are using the papers to promote their online presence. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It has a very good free offering: No risks involved. I'd highly recommend to register an account, browse around and set up at least one paper to see where it can be useful. If you run Twitter chats, Paper.li is a must to document each one. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Paper.li automates curation: You set up it once and then it rolls on its own notifying the paper followers of the most recent updates (and even mentioning them in the tweets). It's a good way to grow your brand exposure on auto-pilot. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It can be super simple to select, collate and present a variety of content pieces via a customizable online paper format. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sharing via social requires a lot of customization to not appear spammy. I've seen far too many instances of people creating a basic Paper.li page and spamming their social networks everytime something is posted. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

From a curation standpoint, it helps to collect information. Some of our employees have tried this to create their own personalized accounts and build thoughts leadership. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I used paper.li as an automated service to post repurposed content to my followers on Twitter. If you set new content to be delivered every day, it does exactly that. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There's no original content within the paper.li system. You're only reposting other users' content. If you're trying to appear to be an expert in a certain industry, circulating poorly edited content is not the way to go. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're searching for custom content, I would turn to an agency or Skyword or Scripted or Content Quotes. If you're just trying to circulate content that already exists, then paper.li will meet your needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was searching for a new tool to generate content inexpensively on our social media profiles. Paper.li was not successful in filling that need. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

You can curate a paper automatically, or if you pay control it's content in depth.

It autoshares to your network and engages the people it pulled articles from. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Not much control over free version. You get a lot more featured and control if you need it with an upgrade. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would uses the pay version if you want to establish a serious news or paper. But it is worth it either way. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It gave me free exposure and helped me network with people in my field on twitter! The benefits were more following and interactions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The layout isn't the "sexiest," but it's definitely more functional. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've used paper.li for quick curation of topic-specific content. It's an easy tactic for PR + comms pros to get influencers to notice you. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
