Flipboard was launched in July 2010 world’s first social magazine, where content from social networks, publishers, online sources and photo sharing sites could all be accessed in one place. Initially it was started to enhance the reading experience of its users, but slowly it has evolved as a full fledged tool not only for finding the best content on a particular topic but also as a best medium to drive traffic to the blogs and guess what, with its user base of more than 90 million it is proving to be the successful also for driving traffic.

    I tried using Flipboard back at the beginning of this year, but gave up on it. Think I will go and revisit it to see if we can drive more traffic after reading this.
