The End of StumbleUpon? Blog Functionality Being Phased Out, Users Headed to Tumblr

[twitter_follow username=”ForHireMedia”]
Word around StumbleUpon is that the social bookmarking site, powered by its ever-popular and addictive toolbar,  will soon do away with their blogging functionality. User profiles will revert to the “thumbnail” view, erasing years of user-tailored blog pages, some of them carefully tweaked using basic HTML. Though StumbleUpon staff members are assuring everyone they’ll have plenty of time to export their blogs, they don’t claim to have a working export feature just yet. Here are some screenshots of the earful StumbleUpon staff are having to deal with over at Get Satisfaction, along with the official statement from their community manager.

Here’s one of the original queries along with some colorful commentary from a community that doesn’t seem to favor the changes.

  16. Monica stop using excuses. I been with StumbleUpon since inception and it has gone downhill fast. You were passed up by other competitors long ago and now you say you “the reason why you didn’t communicate”? Please, just take the place offline. Facebook and Twitter have left you in the dust!

    This thing has passed hands like a collection plate at the church.

  17. We disagree that its over. We joined StumbleUpon recently and find it extremely helpful for finding companies and driving traffic back to our own site. We just wrote up about it from an opposite perspective.
