Love Flipboard. This new feature opens up a whole new world for content curation.

Víctor V. Valera Jiménez's curator insight, May 17, 2013 7:31 PM

Ahora ya no hace falta disponer de un Ipad o una tablet o smartphone para realizar nuestra propia revista en Flipboard, ya que con el nuevo editor online en la web de esta conocida herramienta, podremos realizar nuestra propia curación desde nuestro ordenador.

 

Este vídeo nos da una pequeña introducción de como empezar a usar este editor en la web de Flipboard, mediante el botón o "bookmarklet" que se puede instalar en la barra de favoritos de nuestro navegador para ir capturando los contenidos que nos parezcan interesantes para nuestra publicación.

Flipboard generates a great user friendly interface.  Curious about curation? Investigate this.

A great way to aggregate and present content to students.  Or even better, flip that process and have students create their own content collections.

tephen Dale's insight:

Flipboard (an App available for iOS and Android) is my favourite app for consuming and sharing inrormation. Relevence is improved by being able to choose the topics you want to follow, and liking or favouriting specific articles.

 

The recent addition of the Flipboard Editort now enables you to create and curate your own magazine, which you can share with others, or keep simply as a place for bookmarking.

 

In this article, Sue Waters provides a step by step guide on how to use and make the most of the Flipboard features.

Curating Digital Magazines with Flipboard 2.0: More Noise or True Resources?

Flipboard founder Mike McCue gives you an inside look behind 2.0.

Robin Good's curator insight, April 1, 2013 3:07 PM



If you haven't tried it yet, here is a cool video with Mike McCue from Flipboard, where he showcases all of the new features that make Flipboard 2.0 such a cool new publishing tool.


I think anyone who doesn't have an iPad should check this video clip out as to get a basic idea of what FlipBoard now does, when it comes to curation and publishing, and HOW it does it.


From my own viewpoint I can't disagree with the fact that there is no easier way today to create and put together a good looking curated magazine. At least if you have an iPhone or iPad.


If you listen closely to the things that Mike McCue says, the focus is clearly on creating a cool-looking magazine in the easiest and fastest possible way.


This is the critical point.


The fad to put together cool looking magazines may not last very long, as we have already seen that the quality of curated publications that require little or no effort to be put together is generally very shallow.


Curation requires time, attention to details and no desire to do things in the least possible time. It's like collecting stamps while driving. Something is not right.


So the question is open: is FlipBoard going to generate a tsunami of cool-looking image-based "noise", or after the initial rush, these newly mint curated magazines could actually become valuable resources and "points of reference" in their respective industries or interest niches?

What do you expect? What do you see?

Thanks for this post Robin. Sadly, curation without purpose is just noise. It's not the tool, it's the talent.
Robin Good's comment, April 2, 2013 2:10 AM
Can't disagree with that.
