StumbleUpon Adds More Features for Website Traffic
StumbleUpon.com recently received a new design and some new features that the social media company is hoping will increase their web traffic and social stats.
The claims are that they have made changes so that it’s now easier to Stumble and explore new and interesting content from all over the Web.
New key features include:
~ An improved and easier to use StumbleBar
~ New Channels to explore from your favorite sites, people and brands
~ The Explore Box: just type a word or phrase and see amazing new Stumbles
StumbleUpon's management wants the site to be seen as a new way to search the web, and are attempting to appeal to businesses as well as website owners.
Channels features will now allow every site, celebrity, brand or business to set up their own profile and get people to follow them on StumbleUpon, adding an experience similiar to other social sites. Currently there are 250 launch partners for the StumbleUpon channels.
Their mobile apps have been designed also to pull content that comes from the new channels, but you won’t be able to manage your channels from the mobile apps right away, this will come in the future and is expected soon.
