Too generic, algorithm is not working

What used to be my favourite place to read news articles and interesting bits has not become relegated to third or fourth place. I feel like the old Flipboard was much better. The recent changes have made it less customizable and the content less curated and more random. The algorithm that is choosing what I see and what I don't see is not really doing the app many favours.

Hey,

I'm a fan of Flipboard but as many aggregators, the problem is that when you're interested in one subject, you'll aggregate seral sources of contents and you'll mostly come across many similare contents.
So you have to go through each articles and try to get the most of each ones.

What if your social networks helps you grab the best articles?

Imagine an app that starts as a Flipboard Like. Then connected to Facebook for ie, likes and recommandations of your friends applies ratings to the initial content. Then best contents show up and your done.

You save time and profit from a magazine user interface and the richness of social intelligence.

Give it a try!

Hi, this is exactly what Daily Social - https://mydailysocial.info does. And it sends articles to Pocket or Readability, so you can easily add other articles to read them later.

I understand the awesomeness of having flipboard for IPad and IPhone. How would it benefit me to have it on my Mac OS X? Purchasing an IPad and/or IPhone is hopefully going to happen this year, but right now it is not financially possible. I just heard of flipboard today and am curious.
