From the Future of VR to Extreme Weather, 50 #MagsWeLove from 2017
Jenn de la Vega / December 29, 2017
We’re taking a look back at the Year in Flipboard Magazines and celebrating the stories curated into one-of-a-kind collections. From major hurricanes to the Harvey Weinstein scandal to the Russia probe and beyond, Flipboard Magazines helped us all more deeply understand our world. In science and tech, curators explored space travel, pioneered VR, and geeked out about the iPhone X. Super fans rooted for their favorite soccer, rugby and baseball teams. It was also great to watch your journeys with health, fitness, optimism and hitting personal goals.
To determine which Flipboard Magazines made this list, we looked at all the magazines created in 2017 and then considered the average quality of their articles, the engagement on those items, and the number of followers for the magazine as a whole. We cut collections that didn’t have a minimum of 30 items, and we favored magazines that had good descriptions so we knew that the curator had a specific intent and point of view.
Here they are, in no particular order:
We also thought it would be fun to look all the Flipboard topics contained in these 50 magazines in a word cloud. You can see that science, technology, entertainment, and travel were top of mind for our curators this year.
