Flipboard Brings More Social Media to Latest Edition
Post updates from anywhere, to any network
With this new edition, Flipboard goes beyond just the reading of social content by expanding the way users interact with tweets, articles, photos and other shared items. In addition to liking, commenting and retweeting, it's now possible to post status updates, share photos and add comments from anywhere in Flipboard to post across social networks. Flipboard's readers can easily share what they see in one social network with friends and followers in another. For example, if they see an interesting article on Twitter, they can post that story on their Facebook wall.
New ways to browse social content
The latest edition of Flipboard introduces fast switching between sections, browsing feeds and the ability to quickly add them to the table of contents. Just tap on a masthead from anywhere in the magazine and choose from a list of related features and recommended sections for quick viewing. This method of navigating feeds is a completely new way to browse social content; using related feeds and social curation instead of hyperlinks to go from one page to the next.
Faster to the full story
To give readers quicker access to the full story, Flipboard has eliminated the "read on web" button and now automatically loads the original web page, RSS feed or Flipboard Pages view of a story when a reader taps on an excerpt. The deeper integration with Flipboard Pages, a way to display web content in a magazine-style layout that Flipboard is currently testing with nine publishers that was recently announced, creates a beautiful, end-to-end reading experience.
Flipboard is the world's first social magazine. Inspired by the beauty and ease of print media, Flipboard's mission is to fundamentally improve how people discover, view and share content across their social networks.
