TechNadu: StumbleUpon Alternatives that still work in 2019 (and reason for its shutdown). “In 2018, StumbleUpon, our favorite content curator on the internet, stopped its services forever after being active for straight 16 years. Many think it’s the result for being inadaptive to the new generation social media trends. The website was stale and irresponsive on mobile. Often the content from the other site didn’t support its interface. It was time for a change. Now, upon visiting the StumbleUpon’s website, it redirects the user to a new website mix.com, which also, at the moment, is our top StumbleUpon alternative. After its exit, many of StumbleUpon’s alternatives came into the scene to organize your various interests at one place. Here, we are listing our top 10 alternatives of StumbleUpon.” Some standards here (Reddit, Digg) and some you may not have heard of.
Neowin: After 16 years, StumbleUpon finally retires to give way to Mix. “StumbleUpon used to be the discovery engine that pushed recommended sites to users prior to the social media age dominated by Facebook and Twitter. Its co-founder, Garrett Camp, announced in May that the content aggregator site would be shutting down by the end of June, and asked Stumblers to migrate their accounts to Mix.com. Over the weekend, the final hour for StumbleUpon has come to pass: the content discovery site has shut down 16 years after its launch.”
TechCrunch: So long, StumbleUpon. “All told, 16 years is a pretty good run in the social media world. After launching in 2002, website discovery platform StumbleUpon is shutting down on June 30. Over its existence, the service racked up 60 billion stumbles for 40 million users, cofounder Garrett Camp wrote in a Medium post this week.” Wow, first Digg, now this.
