This paper aims to discuss how journalism in a network has transformed the production and circulation of news and as gate keeping and motivation setting, from the action interdependence of ordinary people, journalists, organizations and advanced innovations (such as blogs, Twitter, Facebook and Flipboard). Finally, we analyze the interactions in the Flipboard mobile app. We carried out a study consisting of 13 participants in UUM Sintok, they were assigned five tasks to perform and questionnaires were distributed to gather their experience with the app. The results of this study showed that participants were satisfied with the application's aesthetic but find the complexity of features provided in the application to perform various functions very frustrating to use.
