Stumbleupon

with 7 comments

Stumbleupon is a website where people can sign up and then ‘stumble’ across different things that interest them. For instance, if you like photography, you can ‘stumbleupon’ sites specifically made for people who are interested in photography. There are so many different things that you can discover, like graphic design, cartoons, painting, web development, movies, travel, and more.

Stumbleupon is a user-friendly site, and has a large variety of things that the viewer can look at. If someone is just interested in looking at several different things, and doesn’t have one specific theme in mind, then they can just look at everything.

The site also allows people to ‘like’ a site, and that way when you stumble, it will show you more things similar to what you have liked. So the more someone likes, the more the site gets an idea of what you like to look at, and it also provides a reference for later in case you want to go back to it.

  5. Yeah, I do use this site. I think it’s so popular because there are a lot of different categories, so it appeals to a variety of people with different interests.

  7. Interesting, I haven’t heard of this. It should be very useful when brainstorming or just simply browsing for inspiration.
