Community guidelines – Flipboard guide

Flipboard is the one place for everything you love, filled with great stories for all your passions.  We provide you the tools to find, collect, and share these stories, but require that you adhere to our Community Guidelines.How to Share Content on Flipboard: Flipboard is a community of people who love to share and discover inspired and inspiring content. If you stick to the following recommendations when curating magazines, we’ll all have a great time here.

  • Flip creatively. Anything that inspires you can define a magazine: topics you love, places you want to go, articles to read later, things you want share with friends, and more. Remember that your magazines are public by default, so don’t add anything you wouldn’t want your mom or boss to see. Make your magazine private if you want to keep it to yourself.
  • Flip respectfully. Flipboard users are from all over the world, with diverse interests and perspectives—that’s what makes it such an exciting place.  When you leave a comment or interact with others, keep in mind that you’re talking to a real person. Treat our community the way you want to be treated.
  • Flip genuinely. Be yourself. Share what you love and comment earnestly on others’ work. Quality interactions help our ecosystem thrive and strengthen our community.  You might even experience a boomerang back to you in your Notifications, where you can see who’s interacting with your flips.
  • Flip watchfully. Help us cultivate a healthy community. If you see content that’s objectionable or unsafe, tap Flag Inappropriate.  The item will be removed from your device and we’ll review it.  If you’d rather not see items from a person or publisher but there’s nothing unsavory about the content you can “Mute Site”
  • Comment responsibly.  Don’t be a jerk. We have zero tolerance for comments that are racist, hateful, threatening or disrespectful, and reserve the right to remove comments that:
  • Are considered likely to disrupt, provoke, attack or offend others. Are racist, sexist, homophobic, sexually explicit, abusive or otherwise objectionable.
  • Contain swear words or other language likely to offend.
