Flipboard, if you are not yet familiar with it, is your personal magazine, a single place on your smartphone or tablet to discover, collect, and share the news you care about. As a blogger, Flipboard is a tool you do not want to be without. Flipboard fuels your creativity, expands your audience, introduces you to potential collaborators, and most importantly, delivers content for you to curate.
Remember the 80/20 or 70/20/10 rules for social engagement everyone recommends? If you have ever wondered where you find content for the 70 to 80% of your social media posts, you have the answer: Flipboard.
In this class, you will learn how to optimize your Flipboard to deliver search results specific to topics you care about, follow hashtags to keep abreast of trends as they develop, organize your feeds so that you can focus your reading experience, and more.
Some resources to get you started with your Flipboard before class:
- Tutorials take you from downloading Flipboard, picking topics, and setting up your social networks so that you can share directly from Flipboard.
- The Flipboard Basics series shares three ways to navigate and how to fill your feed with content.
- How to be ridiculously interesting (in four steps or maybe less)
- Five popular ways to use Flipboard magazines
