News reader application Flipboard has released a new update this week enabling users of both their Android and iOS applications to be able to fine-tune the content they receive.
The new feature includes a couple of options that allow you to give a thumbs up or thumbs down to content that is presented to you, allowing you to see more of what you’d like and less of what you don’t.
There are also options to completely mute content from a site or even report content to Flipboard. Flipboard explains more via their blog :
Your interests and passions are as unique as you are—which is why today’s update gives you greater controls over the content you see in your Cover Stories. Often the first stop for readers, Cover Stories is your Flipboard “home feed,” offering a quick overview of everything you’re following from magazines, topics, sources and more.
Now the personalization of Cover Stories can go further: tap the new caret (v) in the upper right corner of any article to fine-tune your home feed. No matter where you are on Flipboard, if you see something you like and want to get more of it in your Cover Stories, tap “More like this.” If you’d rather see less of something, tap “Less like this.” These two simple actions will help adjust the content mix in your Cover Stories.
