    I see that I can follow them on Mastodon, but it seems like all their posts are just meta announcements vs curated links. Should I be following their individual editors instead? I want to love Mastodon but I just can’t figure out how to find good content there !

      From the article it sounds like full integration will be done in January

        Okay right on. Thanks Scrubbles. Do you have any reccommendations for Mastodon?

          I found that the best way to enjoy/find content on Mastodon is to follow hashtags. Think keywords of whatever you are interested to see in your feed and search different variations of those keywords. Browse those hashtags and follow them if the content seems interesting.

    The company announced on Monday that it is beginning to switch its user accounts to ActivityPub, which means that everyone curating stuff on Flipboard is now doing so in a way that apps like Mastodon can see and interact with.

    At that point, Flipboard will essentially be an ActivityPub-based platform like Mastodon or Pixelfed but with an interface designed for reading articles instead of bite-sized posts.

    In spirit, a federated Flipboard shouldn’t feel all that different from, say, one of those Twitter users who would obsessively curate news or information around a specific topic.

    The promise of the fediverse is that if you like or respond to a post, that is also compiled and synced across apps and services, but Flipboard hasn’t quite finished that yet.

    McCue has spent the last year telling anyone who will listen (including The Verge) that ActivityPub, Mastodon, and the federated social internet are the future.

    Flipboard launched a Mastodon instance called flipboard.social earlier this year, and recently announced it’s no longer integrating with X and focusing instead on open platforms.

    I love the concept of clipboard, but it is curated with the most garbage clickbait articles imaginable. Hopefully this move will be an improvement in that regard!
