Stumbleupon is a search engine that allows its users to discover and rate web content, including web pages, photos, and videos.
For those of you who use Stumbleupon already, you know that it can either be the best or worst thing to happen to your day. It’s an INSTANT cure for boredom! What’s great about Stumbleupon for me is that it completely eliminates the need to be decisive. I don’t have to make any decisions! Stumbleupon decides for me. Another great thing about Stumbleupon is that it learns from your ratings. The more you rate things either up or down, the better at showing you new content Stumbleupon becomes. However, with the good also comes the bad. For example, once I liked a recipe for brownies. Now I get recipes for other baked goods…all the time. Stumbleupon can also be a catalyst for endless procrastination. You know you should be doing work…but you just keep hitting the Stumble button. *sigh*
All in all, I give Stumbleupon two thumbs up.
In other news, the Boston sunset will be AFTER 8pm tonight! Huzzah! Summer is upon us!
