38 Brilliant Bloggers Talk About StumbleUpon

38 Brilliant Bloggers Talk About StumbleUpon | Social Media Pearls | Scoop.it

StumbleUpon is the ultimate time waster (and I mean that in a good way!). If you don’t have the toolbar installed, I suggest you do so – it’s your portal to lots of amazing things on the Internet that you’d never find otherwise. You just set your parameters and hit the Stumble button…be warned that it’s easy to spend hours surfing this way.


If you have a hit on StumbleUpon, you can bring in thousands of new visitors – and while traffic does spike, it also continues over time as long as people keep giving you the thumbs up of approval (like a Facebook “like”). Be warned, though – the user’s mouse usually hovers on the Stumble button, so if you don’t catch their attention quickly, they’ll be on to the next random page on the Internet...

Analyzing The New Twitter Redesign And What It Means For Users

Analyzing The New Twitter Redesign And What It Means For Users | Social Media Pearls | Scoop.it

The redesign that Twitter has undergone this time around is a marked shift from the past. Up until now, Twitter had stuck to its design elements and at most had tweaked them for better usability. This time though, the changes are significant and going by the number of changes that we see, brands as well as users are in for a big surprise and could radically change the way the micro-blogging site is used on an everyday basis.

 

With over 100 million users and the competition heating up, the change was imminent and perhaps arrives at the time when advertisers are warming up to the idea of advertising on Twitter. The site has grown 25% since October and has in fact become a featured application on both the iPad and the iPhone...
