Flipboard is your social magazine built for a mobile world. By showcasing social media and Web content in a print-style magazine, it’s one place to enjoy and share all of your news and life’s great moments. How to Share Content on Flipboard: Flipboard is a community of people who love to share and discover inspired and inspiring content. If you stick to the following recommendations when curating magazines, we’ll all have a great time here.
- Flip creatively. Anything that inspires you can define a magazine: topics you love, places you want to go, articles to read later, things you want share with friends, and more. Remember that your magazines are public by default, so don’t add anything you wouldn’t want your mom or boss to see. Make your magazine private if you want to keep it to yourself.
- Flip respectfully. Flipboard users are from all over the world, with diverse interests and perspectives—that’s what makes it such an exciting place. When you leave a comment or interact with others, keep in mind that you’re talking to a real person. Treat our community the way you want to be treated.
