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.
Robin Good's comment, August 9, 2013 10:00 AM
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.

Start Curating Your Flipboard Magazine Without an iPad: Introducing the Flipboard Editor on the Web

 

 


Via Robin Good
Louise Robinson-Lay's insight:

Flipboard now allows you to curate your gorgeous magazines on the web as well as your iPad. This has been a favorite feature of mine for some time now and it is great that non iPad users can enjoy it too. 

You can create magazines around themes so students could do beautiful class projects to share with the world rather than just their teacher.

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

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.

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Everytime I see a new post or article claiming to list the best content curation tools I know I am in for some disappointment.

 

Most of these lists just pick up names from other lists without even bothering to check, test or verify what these tools actually do, whether they are still available. Unfortunately the rush to put out "curated" list of tools and services has created more misinformation than useful lists. 

 

But if you, like me, are on the lookout for new and effective tools to curate your own content or the one of your customers, I have created a comprehensive map of all the curation tools available online and I keep it fresh and updated almost on a daily basis.

 

The map presently lists over 250 content curation tools which you can navigate much more easily than it was possible on my earlier versions of this map.

 

On the right side of the map you will find all of the news and content curation tools available online today. On the left side, you can find bookmarking, link lists builders, clippers and lots of tools to operate with RSS feeds (which are still at the heart of a curator's job).

Full map: http://bit.ly/ContentCurationUniverse  

Share it.

A useful addition to the digital curator's toolkit.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, November 3, 2013 9:24 AM

When you Mummify a webpage—a news article, blog post, photo or tweet, for example— we make a permanent copy and back it up in the cloud. We then give you a new URL that looks like this: http://mummify.it/2452862


Mummify is free up to 100 mummies a month. If you need to Mummify more than 100 pages in a given month you can purchase 50 more for $5.

Hi students (and visitors). If you are having trouble with your profile photo changing every time that you post a new scoop, you can fix it by following these directions that a representative from Scoop.it sent me:
Indeed there's a setting to avoid that. Tell your students that on their Curate page, click on Manage>Customizations>untick "Last Post Image" box and click on Save.
