Since Flipboard launched on the web the audience of my Flipboard magazine ( http://flip.it/7dXbs ) has grown from 1000 people to 8000 people. So for me this was a huge shift.

Thank you Trendspotter for sharing this valuable info. Much appreciated indeed.
trendspotter's comment, August 14, 2013 12:00 PM
To be fair. First the CEO of Flipboard had added my Future magazine to his personal list of his favorite magazines. Then some weeks later the team at Flipboard added my magazine in their new overview of officially recommended Flipboard user magazines, where I'm still listed here (https://flipboard.com/magazines/#tech-science) that is when my readership grew to 8000 people. Now I've noticed that my magazine is also showing up in the recommended list of tech magazines in the Flipboard app, next to large media sites like Ars Technica or Giga OM or TNW. That is when I grew to 10.000 readers.

So my point is: Flipboard starting the web version was not the only effect why I got so many new readers there. Basically the reason was their promotion of my magazine, which started when they started their web version.
