    I do, really. For some unknown reason I get sick when I see Facebook, so I'm better off without it (or outsource my work on it, if I need to) ;]

    Hmmm, maybe I need to go back in and check out stumbleupon again. I honestly can't stand facebook and avoid it like the plague.

    Any decent StumbleUpon automation tools out there? I used to have a couple but now it's either find or write a new one.

    If you have a site with one meaningful post and one author, it is still better than having a site with 100 crap articles and 1000 writers. That's from a person's point of view. Search engines would take this in a different way.

    I pasted the article so you could see for yourselves. It's not saying that it ranks higher than FB. It's referring only to US social media traffic.

    StumbleUpon has beaten Facebook as the No. 1 source for social media traffic in the US, according to analytics site Statcounter. The news was posted by StumbleUpon founder and chief Garrett Camp on his Twitter account.

    According to Statcounter data, StumbleUpon accounted for about 43% of the US social media traffic on January 1, while Facebook accounted for about 38%.

    Statcounter reportedly tracks 15 billion page views on the Web per month on more than three million websites. Among social media sites, it tracks the top seven are StumbleUpon, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, YouTube, Myspace and Digg.

    Interestingly, during the same period in 2010, StumbleUpon made up 30% of the traffic, while Facebook had 48%.

    In April 2010, Statcounter stated that Stumbleupon was consistently in the top two social media sites in terms of generating traffic in the US, actually bypassing Facebook back in March 2010 by over 10%.

    SU is obviously way better than facebook. THE ENTIRE POINT OF IT IS TO SEND TARGETED TRAFFIC TO YOUR SITE! The only problem is there are no publicly for sale good bots or good methods.

    Would people be interested if I were to make a bot for it and sell it?

    I used to love SU. I would find some of the most interesting sites. Also, it would bring pretty decent traffic to any of my own sites I would stumble. Time to dig out that old (2 to 3 years) account.
