If you have noticed the changes to my sidebar then you will have noticed that I have joined three social networks (Blog Catalog, StumbleUpon and Mybloglog). My aim in joining these social networks so is to promote onecoolsiteblogging tips.com and increase traffic to my blogging tips, blogging tools and blogging resources for wordpress bloggers posts.
Stumble Upon is a social website which allows its users a new way to experience the Internet. Instead of searching for specific items on search engines like Google, Stumble Upon users only have to tag specific personal or professional interests and then ‘channel surf’ the web by simply clicking on a button on Stumble Upon tool bar.
Upon doing so, they will be randomly directed to specific websites which adhere to their lists of interests. Users can then choose to tag the webpage they are on or give it a ‘thumbs up‘ or ‘thumbs down‘ to indicate if they want to see it again.
Users can also use the Stumble Upon toolbar as a form of social bookmarking. By surfing the web and tagging or submitting specific websites, each user can keep track of which websites they like and share it with others. (1.)
I’ve yet to really become effective when it comes to using stumbleupon so I set out to find some posts regarding the same and I was pleased to find a post that contained 5 Tips to get the most out of Stumbleupon.
Better still is that the post also included:
