    I created a new account on StumbleUpon because I cannot remember the username or email for the one I created 2 years ago. How do you get quick friends so I can do the StumbleUdon method?

    My username is JCalista.

    I will reciprocate.

    Thanks!

    You can also add friends from stumble upon as many as you like .. then others will add you as theit friends too. I did this in one hour.. it was easy..

    That was my first idea, too. You have been lucky to select responsive members as your friends.

    I still have about 20 on my fan list who never reciprocated the friendship, however many of them have posted on stumbleUdon forum request to get mutual friends.

    Probably they don't know that they have to add their fan as friend to make the friends be mutual.

    That's why I came with the idea to create the StumbleUpon friends group on this forum (link in my signature). Read the instruction there to understand the group's set-and-forget feature.

    When you join, you add all the members to your friends and you don't have to visit the group again. Just check your StumbleUpon friends page every day to add your new fans to your friends. Eventually you may add some friends of your new friends, too.

    Now I add about 4-6 friends everyday without any effort.

    Next good thing to do would be reviewing each other's stumbles reciprocally.

    1. Pick The Topic
    Pick the topic in which you have most knowledge and you are most interested. There are many topics to choose and you can see a big list here. Find the topic of interest.
    2. Choose The User:
    Once you have chosen the topic of interest, you will be leaded to a page where you will see a few stumblers who have stumbled some articles recently. There will be 10 stumblers for any particular topic and you can choose a stumbler from it.
    3. Add Them As A Friend
    Be careful while doing this. You should not add all the users and send messages to them. Add one or two a day. Go to their profile page and click on "Add Him/Her As A Friend".
    4. Send Them A Message
    This is the most important thing in getting friends. The message you send matters a lot. This message will determine whether the person will be your friend or not. Send a message like this:
    Hi, I'm [Your Name] and I'm a [Your Profession]. I visited your profile and found that both of us have the same interests. I just added you now. How are you? Have a great time.
    Cheers,
    [Your Name]
    This message will be good enough and the person you add will most probably add you
    5. Tell Them More About You
    The next step will be to tell more about you and how much you liked their blog or website (many stumblers have a blog/website). Send them critiques about their latest post. Tell them about their blog design and how well it looks. Stumble a few of their pages.
    That's all you need to do to get a new friend through StumbleUpon. But maintaining the friendship is equally hard. Don't send requests often to stumble your post unless you have written something of good value. Talk to them often. If you want to add someone right now, then feel free to add me. Also don't forget to Subscribe to my blog for more posts on StumbleUpon.

    I usually monitor my discovered pages and see who else has given a thumbs up, try to follow that person for a day or two, visit his profile etc.
    It's just lots of fun hanging around StumbleUpon.
    Since StumbleUpon doesn't send notifications if someone has befriended, I feel it's good to message that person
