WHAT is StumbleUpon?
StumbleUpon is a very nice tool to help you discover new and great websites. These sites that are recommended to you have been based on your interests, when you register you get to pick from over 500 interests. So when you are taken to a webpage from stumbling, you have the option to either “thumbs up” the website or “thumbs down” ( / ) then it will adjust itself according to your choice. When you thumbs something up your recommendation will be sent to others who have set up the same interests as you do, and vice versa. When you stumble, you will only see pages that friends and like-minded stumblers have recommended. This helps you discover great content you probably wouldn’t find using a search engine. I find it much easier to find almost random pages on content I like rather than using a search engine because, when using a search engine you come to millions of results; and often times some of the pages have nothing to do with what you wanted. StumbleUpon gives you one site. I have discovered so much great content that I would have never discovered else where.
Go ahead and give it a shot, I think you will like it. I sure do!
