Use Flipboard to generate traffic to your blog

Founded in 2010, Flipboard is a platform that acts as a news aggregator and social network aggregator. It aggregates content from social media, news feeds, photo sharing sites and other websites presents it in magazine format, and allows users to “flip” through the articles, images, and videos being shared.

Flipboard, which was started as a magazine-style feed reader some time back, is now one of the top choices for feed reading and content discovery on various devices. Estimated by the Flipboard community, almost 100 million users today use Flipboard.

Most of the users reported that the Flipboard has enhanced their reading experience.

In order to create and save stories, a user needs to register on Flipboard. Creating a Flipboard account to save stories and make magazines. It can help preserve Flipboard’s set up from device to device and device to platform (it’s also useful for people who share a device).

Here’s how to create a Flipboard account:

  • Register for Flipboard: On mobile, tap on the red “Sign Up” button. Choose how you will connect and a password. Next, you will be asked to start your profile by adding your name, preferred username, and photo. On the Web, visit and click on “Sign Up.”

  • Now, click on Edit Profile for further customization. Here, you can change your display name, your username and your details.

The great thing about Flipboard is, everyone can be reader or editor or both. Flipboard Magazines are flexible and customizable and can be used to showcase your passions in unique and beautiful ways. You can create magazines to discuss current events with friends, plan events or trips, curate information for work or about passions, or just to save articles for future reference.
