“PostPost — which shouldn’t be confused with the similarly named PostPo.st — resembles the mobile app Pulse and the iPad app Flipboard — the difference being, PostPost is accessible through your web browser.”
PostPost is network-specific news streaming service just like Flipboard, and it’s riding the wave the iPad app has generated. The publishing industry is amidst a transformation, and social networking is playing a bigger and bigger role. This includes curated user-generated content, as it’s a powerful driver for this joint shifting.
Flipboard had established a vision of this change, if not a full-on revolution from a brand and customer standpoint, but as we mention here, they faced some early trouble concerning a licensing breach. Nonetheless, the iPad app is gaining popularity, as Flipboard CEO Mike McCue discussed at this week’s ‘D: Dive Into Mobile’ conference his vision for the app. Aiding to this growing industry is the booming influence of apps and the personal cloud, which may even suggest a bright outlook for Flipboard and PostPost.
