Flipboard has added a new private share option to its iOS app that lets users send individual articles to friends on the service via email.

Recipients receive articles via email and under a “Shared With You” section within the notifications section of the app. That section can also be used to create magazines from friends’ shares:

Go to the Notifications area and tap “View all shared with you” to flip through a magazine of all the articles friends have sent to you. If your friends are prolific sharers, tap “subscribe” to add this magazine to your favorite tiles and Cover Stories.

The feature is an iOS exclusive for now. Most users will likely continue to share content publicly to social networks, though this is a good way to get a person’s attention.
