I rarely use the Stumble! button on the StumbleUpon toolbar. Basically, what it does is when you press it, it offers you a random site that others have “stumbled,” or voted for, as good sites. It’s actually pretty fun to discover these sites that you’d never come across otherwise.
Oh, Cookie Monster, you are so…consistent.
What do we learn from this (since everything must have a purpose):
- Social media can be fun.
- Social media can be a huge time waster, so be careful.
- If you use StumbleUpon enough, and/or you write good blog posts that others will want to “Stumble,” you too can enjoy surprise visitors and increased traffic to your site.
