StumbleUpon
« on: August 26, 2011, 09:28:50 pm »
Is anyone else addicted, besides me? It's a website in which you create an account, manage interests, and stumble upon (hence the name) random articles and all that jazz pertaining to your interests. I highly recommend it to anyone who tends to get bored easily.

I love this website. <3 I've had a few instances where I've gotten websites that gave me viruses, but I have programs to remove them, so it's not that big of a deal. It's rare, anyway. I think I've been using StumbleUpon for about two years, and has only happened about twice. Anyway, I use this pretty much every day. I've found some useful/interesting things this way. :P

Yikes, viruses are never good. Well, I guess it all depends on what your interests are. If a certain interest is totally sketch, lie Wicca or something, well then I could see :P

I have never heard of StumbleUpon, until now, so I made an account... And now i'm addicted! It's like nothing i've ever seen/done.

I only have four interests listed: history, American history, literature, and quotes. I think the two I got viruses from were both listed under quotes, though. I get a lot of less-than-reliable sites through that one. :/

But in any case, I love StumbleUpon. <3 Like I said, this has only happened twice and I have a few programs that make virus removal relatively easy, so I don't mind.
