Basics #2: The One and Only Thing You Need to Personalize Flipboard
Think of Flipboard as your one-stop shop to keeping up with the news and your interests. Whether you enjoy business articles from Fast Company or ice cream recipes from a friend on Facebook, it’s easy to make Flipboard your own with one action: Follow.
The Follow button looks like a bookmark and is located on a magazine cover or at the top of the section you’re flipping through. You can follow publications, blogs, social accounts, hashtags, search results and magazines. Following generates an easy-to-access tile on your Flipboard. And voilà! Now you have your favorite things to read and see at your fingertips.
Pro tip: If you’ve followed so many sources that you can no longer see them on your Table of Contents, tap the red ribbon and go to My Flipboard to see the rest of what you are following.
When you follow things you like, Flipboard will do the hard work for you and combine content in a single place called Cover Stories, a place to get a little bit of everything you enjoy. Flip through your Cover Stories to get highlights from the sections you follow.
