After 16 years online StumbleUpon, a social sharing and a random content generating platform has officially closed its doors.
Wow, after 16 years, the day has come. Today is the last day that Stumbleupon.com exists online, and as we head into this moment, we want to look back and thank you for making StumbleUpon an internet legend.
Before posts and tweets, before snaps and pins, StumbleUpon was there providing endless internet entertainment with just the push of a button. Because of users like you, we served up nearly 60 billion stumbles to over 40 million Stumblers, and infinite hours of “woah, cool” moments. StumbleUpon was more than just a button. People connected, made friends, found career inspiration, and even fell in love!
I met some of my dearest friends on SU. People who I went on to meet in real life. people all around the world. more than just an Internet site. Much much more.

This isn’t “goodbye”; it’s more of a “see ya on the other side”. Recently, we’ve shifted our focus to build a new discovery platform with the lessons we learned from StumbleUpon.
Going forward, all of their users will be migrated to their new platform Mix, which is a social sharing platform founded by Camp.
According to Camp, Mix.com will “combine social and semantic personalization into one streamlined experience.” Camp proclaims the new platform will help users find “obscure but interesting content” that has been recommended from within their social networks.
