Some personal news: I'm now a contributor at @news! I'm so excited to work with the team over there reporting everything happening in the world of distributed social media.

For my first post, I wrote about Ghost joining the 🙏🏼

What's exciting about this is that it isn't just an ActivityPub plugin - it's a top-down re-thinking about what Ghost is as a service. This is ActivityPub for publishers done right.

Congrats to @johnonolan and team!

@quillmatiq Congrats, Anuj!

Threads is the largest player so far to adopt #ActivityPub, and as @mike says, “The implications are huge.”

Why is Threads doing this? How is the team working with the community? How are they thinking about moderation, monetization and privacy in these early days and going forward?
In the newest episode of @dot_social, Mike digs in with @rklambo, Director of Product Management, and @pcottle, Software Engineer. Check it out in the fediverse on PeerTube or wherever you like to listen to podcasts. More details here:

In honor of Earth Day, here are our picks for green-living inspiration from the Flipboard community.

Each of these followable feeds, which we call Magazines, is curated by people interested in sustainability.

Following a Magazine feed in the fediverse is like following a profile, but instead of seeing everything the person shares, you can follow just their posts about the topics you care about.

Inspiration for building your backyard oasis and sustainable living tips by the creator of Green Garden Cottage —

Stories about homesteading, nomadic living, off-grid living, and rural living from one of Flipboard's most active curators —

Sustainable food expert, Darryl Benjamin, shares news about the farm-to-table movement —

Tips and resources for growing a home garden by the creator of Sigrun's Sustainable Kitchen —

Inspiring stories about keeping Mother Earth healthy

Excited to be federated! but not really sure what it means lol. anyone care to explain?

@Flipboard@flipboard.social avatar

@arnienicola Hi! Arnie! A really great starting point is @miaq's Fedi Curious series. You can see all the posts here, and also subscribe on LinkedIn.

@Flipboard I have always had a private account, and now I want a more public one. I went to see if my gmail was registered previously and got a reset password for a name that isn’t mine (at my gmail address). That’s a bit disconcerting. Is this a known bug or corruption?

@Flipboard@flipboard.social avatar

@shoq Hmm, that seems odd! We'll look into this and get back to you.

We've received a few questions lately from the community inquiring about what Flipboard is, so we wanted to share a bit about our mission to inform and inspire the world.

Many of you in the fediverse know Flipboard because of our editorial curation on @NewsDesk, @TechDesk, @CultureDesk, @ScienceDesk and @ArtPhotosDesk.

You might also be familiar with our moves to federate our platform.

We are also an award-winning app/website where publishers, creators, and community members curate content about topics ranging from politics to philosophy. If you want to check it out, download it here, follow topics that interest you, and let us know what you think. We'd love to hear from you.

@holgerschurig Sorry you feel that way! As we mentioned, we've had a number of questions lately of the "What the heck is Flipboard?" variety. These are largely from people in the fediverse who only know us for the curation work we do via our desks — hence the, "many of you in the fediverse know." We wanted to offer a quick explainer about what we've been known for for the past decade. Apologies if you feel it missed the mark.

@Flipboard@flipboard.social avatar

@tennoseremel Oh no! Tell us what you'd like explained more and we'll try and help out!

@Flipboard@flipboard.social avatar

@tennoseremel This is what happens when we say things internally all the time and then assume everyone knows what we're talking about!

Basically, we have these things we call Magazines, which are like containers into which stories can be added. Publishers usually add content via RSS feed, so following one of their Magazines on Flipboard is like following an RSS feed.

Individual users will manually curate (add content to) Magazines. This can be stories they find around the web or on Flipboard itself. Following their Magazines is like following a topical feed of content from multiple sources.

In addition, lots of people just choose to use Flipboard as a content aggregator — based on the topics/publishers etc they choose when they first start using the app, they'll get a "For You" feed aligned with their interests. After that they can just read the stories they're interested in — or they can take the next step and start curating!

Hope that's explained things further and not made things more confusing!

An organization that represents more than 2,000 publishers has written to federal agencies, urging them to launch an investigation into Google after it began removing links to the sites of California-based news outlets. Google announced on Friday that it would take this action in response to a proposed law that would require tech companies to pay for news content. Here's more from CNN.

@Flipboard@flipboard.social avatar

@aldonogueira @janettespeyer Hi there! We have been slowly federating publishers' accounts, starting with U.S., then U.K. and Germany. We don't have Brazilian accounts federated yet, therefore you wouldn't be able to follow them directly from Mastodon, but stay tuned as full federation is on its way!

I find it sad that @Flipboard and their accounts managed by @mike 's PR team doing the good work of the fediverse by including hashtags, mentions and alt-texts of shared articles by the medias that they couldn't do it themselves other than dropping article links to Mastodon.

The Flipboard team is probably the most interactive team I've ever seen.

@Flipboard@flipboard.social avatar

@shadow @mike Thank you — we try our best!

@mimoqc Yikes, that's not what we intended to convey, but we can definitely see how this list looks skewed in that direction! Here's our full spreadsheet of federated user profiles, which we'll be adding to regularly.


Candidly, there are quite a lot of cooking and travel profiles in there (just because those are two of the communities we've partnered with a lot in recent years) but hopefully plenty of variety in there. If you're a Flipboard user, we'd love for you to submit your own application too, using this form.

@Flipboard@flipboard.social avatar

@mimoqc Nous avons de nombreux récits et publications en français et un curateur français résidant en France. Sur l'application/site Flipboard, nous avons également des sujets en français que vous pouvez suivre — y compris féminisme, https://flipboard.com/topic/fr-f%C3%A9minisme. Nous n'avons pas encore fédéré de publications françaises, mais cela arrive bientôt, alors surveillez cet espace !

@Flipboard@flipboard.social avatar

@HonestAndTruly Excited to see what you curate — and what you learn as you find your feet in the fediverse!

@Flipboard@flipboard.social avatar

@HonestAndTruly That's so funny — "not another social platform" was the jumping-off point for an edition of @miaq's Fedi Curious newsletter. You can take a look at it here:

I’m on this list! I am officially federated by @Flipboard. This means that all my blogs, and my #flipboard magazines can be seen all over #mastodon or any #fediverse platform like Threads.
Who cares?
Well, if you are a #publisher, a #journalist or a #blogger and the new Google update is killing you might want to consider getting traffic from other sources. Flipboard and the Fediverse sound like a good option. https://flipboard.medium.com/flipboard-federates-11-000-magazines-by-400-creators-and-enthusiasts-82dd94691f74 #publishing #federation #activitypub

In December, we started to federate the accounts of some Flipboard publishers and in February, we introduced Magazines to the fediverse. Now, we’re taking two important steps: federating the accounts of 400 creators and expert curators; and enabling two-way communication so that new followers and fediverse activity are visible and actionable in the Flipboard app.

To learn more about this, take a look at our blogpost:


Find all the handles of our newly federated curators here:


Thanks so much to everyone who has given feedback on what we’ve done so far. We welcome your thoughts and comments as we continue on our journey to fully federate Flipboard.

@Flipboard@flipboard.social avatar

@AskPippa Hi Pippa! You should be able to find all the handles in this Google spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1iUFTo6rPvhqzCReLaM1c6-xUKRuBVqlZVStZl9Al-EU/edit. Just search for the handle you're interested in on Mastodon and that should bring up their profile and all the Magazines they curate, then hit Follow. It may initially look like the accounts have no content, but that's likely because no one from your server is following them yet. Once you follow them, the next thing they flip should appear in your feed.

@Flipboard@flipboard.social avatar

@Lizette603_23 Sorry about that! You can’t remove it, but you can disable it completely — here’s how: https://flipboard.helpshift.com/hc/en/4-briefing/faq/589-how-to-disable-briefing/.

Newer Samsung devices don't have it installed, but we appreciate that's not terribly helpful if you're not buying a new device!
