Robert Scoble on his blog Scobleizer.com broke a story about some new technology called Flipboard and it included the video included below which I was drawn to watch to completion.  The Flipboard software running on an iPad is a perfect example of how many innovations will be coming for the iPad in the coming year.

Flipboard is very exciting for me since I use social media regularly and have many people I want to stay in touch with; personally and for business.  The Flipboard software is a social media aggregator and presents the social media streams in a magazine format. 

It is mind-blowing how cool this application take an ugly stream of data and turns it into something very easy to read and with full content; a social media magazine.  For example, Flipboard takes a 140 character tweet and follows the link and finds the related story and presents it in an attractive format.

Take a moment to view the video and tell me if you agree that Flipboard is a really cool way to get rich data and stories from your social media streams.

Flipboard Setup

It tool two minutes to setup Flipboard on my iPad and look how cool my Twitter feed looks with articles shown from Eric Miltsch, Cobalt and also from my own posts.

Flipboard Twitter Application

When you setup Flipboard in your iPad make sure you add two important data streams:

http://twitter.com/automotiveseo

http://facebook.com/pcgdigitalmarketing.com

Then the application will truly have "richer" data. :)

I just downloaded the iPad app for free and it is soooooo cool. I think Flipboard is my new favorite iPad app.

I just added a screen shot of the iPad App showing my Twitter feed. Very cool way to read your Twitter stream. This is a game changer.

they are totally overloaded right now from adding new users. Looks to be taking off in a big way. Can't wait to try it once they accept more users. One of the very very very very rare occasions where east coast living pays off as I don't think many west coasters have had access to register yet

This app is a serious player...major threat to the newspapers. Awesome example of how an app can change the way an older, mundane task is accomplished.
Stacy Mueller
Definitely a good find by Robert...coincidentally I just downloaded today upon hearing all the chatter. Can not wait to use it daily.
