Pressing [+] will “flip” the item you are looking at in your own Flipboard magazine. Magazines are great to collect things that you find and they can be shared publicly or kept private just for you. For example, you can create a beautiful magazine full of all the places you want to explore or all the books you want to read.

When you make a magazine, you can share all your favorite social networks to ask your friends to subscribe. Unfortunately, the magazine can only be seen by the Flipboard app, so if a friend clicks the link from your computer, they will not be able to see the contents of your magazine – just an invitation to get an application.
