StumbleUpon officially shuts down today, switch to MIX now
After a whole 16 years of dominating a greater part of the internet, the D-day has finally dawned on StumbleUpon as it will be going off from the cyberspace.
StumbleUpon Shuts Down and switches to Mix
Today, Sunday, July 1st 2018 is the last day that Stumbleupon.com would exists online, and the company is very grateful to all it users that helped to make it great online platform over its years of existence.
I just got a mail from the guys at StumbleUpon revealing to me that the platform will be high-jacked off the internet today. below is what the mail reads.
“Before posts and tweets, before snaps and pins, StumbleUpon was there providing endless internet entertainment with just the push of a button.
Because of users like you, we served up nearly 60 billion stumbles to over 40 million Stumblers, and infinite hours of “woah, cool” moments. StumbleUpon was more than just a button. People connected, made friends, found career inspiration, and even fell in love!” – StumbleUpon team
“I met some of my dearest friends on SU. People who I went on to meet in real life. people all around the world. more than just an Internet site. Much much more.” — CH, stumbled 16 years
Also, the support team says “This isn’t “goodbye”; it’s more of a “see ya on the other side”. Recently, we’ve shifted our focus to build a new discovery platform with the lessons we learned from StumbleUpon.”
Meet the successor of StumbleUpon – Mix
Meet Mix! On Mix, you’ll be able to build shareable collections of your favorite finds across the internet; articles, videos, podcasts, and more.
As you curate the web, your saves will turn into meaningful recommendations for others in Mix. We hope to make discovery a collective endeavor; helping each other find gems from the depths of the web that we wouldn’t have come across on our own.
If you haven’t yet, we’re excited for you to try out Mix! Hope to see you on the other side.
