Flipboard: 85 million users and counting

by Doug Drinkwater

September 12 2013

These are heady times for news aggregator Flipboard, with the firm now up to nearly 85 million users.

The figure was announced by Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers venture capitalist John Doerr at this week’s TechCrunch Disrupt conference and subsequently confirmed by a Flipboard spokesperson.

Doerr, an investor who also sits on Flipboard’s board of directors, added that over 1 million people are creating magazines on the platform – a feature added with version 2.0 – and said that there are now three million of these magazines in circulation.

These figure are remarkable considering Flipboard, which has announced a media partnership with New York Times and made its magazines available online in recent times, only had 20 million users this time last year.
