StumbleUpon picked up by Ebay

By May 31, 2007

This is technically news.

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.)
