Q: How are cards different from tags?
We have heard from users that it would be useful to be able to privately share content with teammates. The boards felt more like a central hub with shared access to allow for team care. The tags did not meet the needs communicated to us by the Feedly community. As this is an area in which we will invest a lot, we have decided to change the terminology to have the right foundation.
If you were using tags, all of your tags and associated content are available as private personal boards.
