Popular web site discover service, StumbleUpon, is not letting acquisition talk distract it from launching new features for its users. Today’s launch of StumbleThru will allow users to explore personalized recommendations from sites such as Flickr, Wikipedia, MySpace and YouTube.
“The collaborative nature of Web 2.0 sites like YouTube and Wikipedia means that content is constantly being generated by millions of users,” said David Feller, Vice President, Marketing in a statement. “StumbleThru provides users the ability to skip the clutter and unearth only the best that these domains have to offer.”
Users can access StumbleThru via their toolbar, a StumbleUpon review page or a new dedicated StumbleThru page.
I spoke to the StumbleUpon team earlier this week and they revealed plans to introduce a Stumble widget for your own web site, just as soon as they build up enough content – so get Stumbling!
