stumbleupon sucks 300x146 The End of StumbleUpon? Blog Functionality Being Phased Out, Users Headed to TumblrWord 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.

  1. 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.
