But mostly it was just an excuse for me to plug the great little service StumbleUpon. If you haven’t checked it out yet, I highly recommend doing so. It’s a fun little tool for semi-random browsing (of sites related to your specified areas of interest.)
And from a marketer’s perspective, it can be a nice little source of traffic as we’ve seen with one of our recent campaigns. Unlike more news-oriented sites like Digg or Reddit where any traffic might only be a temporary spike, the traffic from StumbleUpon seems to come in a more steady flow over a longer period of time.
And as long as we’re talking acquisitions . . . . CBS bought Last.fm, MySpace finally got Photobucket, and Yahoo is rumored to be courting the next MySpace/Facebook called Bebo (to the tune of $1B.)
