Remember when access to information felt limited enough for us to crave more of it? Somewhere between anxiously awaiting our dial-up to connect and now, we peaked. Access to information became so abundant and immediate that we started to crave less—less bombardment, less social media, less noise.
We at Flipboard won’t accept that “less” is the answer to media overload. Through unmatched, obsessive curation of the internet’s vast array of content, we’re determined to reignite the craving for stories that inspire our work, life and play.
It’s a perpetual journey. Today, as part of that journey, we’re excited to introduce our initial set of signature destinations: The Daily Edition, 10 for Today, Vote 2018, and The Culturist. Each franchise is curated by the Flipboard editorial team and often includes contributions from trusted, category leading publishers and content creators who bring unique perspective or depth to the topic. We hope they make you feel informed and inspired.
The Daily Edition is a pillar of Flipboard’s news curation that offers the biggest stories of the day from around the world, carefully curated 24/7 by our News Desk. With dedicated sections on news, business, tech, sports and celebrity news, among others, this franchise ensures its audience is fully prepared for the day.
