Ok, Ok I’ll get an iPad & Flipboard…..

The Daily Social Media Marketing Campaign News
By Howard Oliver, CEO, What If What Next, whatifwhatnext@on.aibn.com

Flipboard is a free app that scans your friends’ Facebook and Twitter posts and present the links and articles that they’ve been posting in a magazine-like layout.

Flipboard has made the way people find, view and share content across their social networks pretty easier. It allows the users to have a totally new social media experience. It gets popular news from the web that the user loves to read about. The most interesting sections are of the Twitter and Facebook.

From their launch release Mike McCue, Flipboard’s CEO commented: “With over 1 billion messages posted every day, social networks are quickly becoming the primary way people discover and share content on the Web. The result is a huge influx of incoming messages and links people must sort through across multiple web sites just to stay up to date. We believe the timeless principles of print can make social media less noisy, more visually compelling and ultimately more mainstream.”

Flipboard also lets readers easily create sections around topics or people they care about. Choose from Flipboard’s suggested sections on topics such as sports, news, tech and style, with content hand-curated from popular and interesting Twitter feeds. Or, create an entirely new section by searching by topic, person or Twitter list to make Flipboard even more personal.

This App goes way beyond the now seemingly clunky Social Book marking sites like Delicious and Digg.

I can see companies giving away iPads pre-loaded with the Flipboard app to close clients to share information that would help accelerate sales cycles.

Way too cool!
