StumbleUpon, good stuff

StumbleUpon is a social browsing application. Users download a browser toolbar and can find popular sites in different categories, vote on sites, etc. Stumbleupon has nearly 2,193,951 registered users in 139 countries, who “stumble” on 5.4 million sites per day.

StumbleUpon is a web tool I absolutely swear by and can eat away hours of your time, while you are ‘StumblingUpon’ sites and webpages. How it works is-

  1. You register and download the toolbar.
  2. You select your interests.
  3. Use the toolbar to randomly discover web pages and sites.
  4. You can then give the pages ‘a thumbs-up’ or ‘a thumbs-down’.

Here’s a screenshot of the toolbar. I couldn’t embed the picture in this post

Here’s a screenshot of my stumbleupon page.


On stumbleupon, you can have a network of friends and you can share links. Then you can join communities with similar interests. Actually there’s quite a lot you can do, and you can explore the other features of StumbleUpon as you go.

Below are a few links I found in the past 10 minutes even as I was writing this post.

I’m sure the above pages will convince you to join StumbleUpon.com.

Happy Stumbling!
