Flipboard helps people discover, view and share content from across the web and social networks. With its visually stunning layout, Flipboard delivers a beautiful and easy way to quickly flip through all the stories, photos and updates you care about in a single place.
We use social media to grow your audience by sharing your content with Flipboard users, who then share it with their friends. Flipboard provides a platform for deep content engagement across a growing audience of social influencers and enthusiastic readers. Our readers make over 10 million social recommendations a month via the app to their friends.
The first step is to provide us with a Flipboard optimized RSS feed. People use Flipboard to search and discover content in a variety of formats, including RSS, Facebook, Google+, Tumblr, Instagram and more. Displaying full article content within the app is possible via optimized RSS, and we require this at a minimum before considering your content for promotion within our Content Guide. Details on optimizing your RSS feed can be found here.
Optimized RSS provides users with a superior reading experience and is much easier to maintain than your website’s HTML/CSS. See an example below of an article that hasn’t been optimized (on the left) and another that has (on the right).
To get started, email a brief summary of the type of content you produce and why you'd like to be featured on Flipboard. Please ensure that your RSS feed complies with our guidelines before contacting us.
Flipboard is compatible with MP4, YouTube and Vimeo video formats as well as MP3 and SoundCloud audio formats. Including multimedia content in your RSS feed is a great way to enhance the reading experience.
We believe advertising should be relevant, engaging and a way for brands to express themselves. We are piloting magazine style full-page advertising with a small group of publishers and hope to open the program to more publishers soon.
Flipboard currently does not have plans to license or otherwise offer a white-label version of its product for publishers or enterprise customers.
There is no cost associated with having your content display on Flipboard.
