RIP Stumbleupon

They were there to cure your boredom a few years ago, throwing random content at you, and now…it’s gone.

From Mashable:

Stumbleupon shuttered recently after 16 years of bringing tailored content to users.

The unsocial media platform received multiple large name angel investors at its inception, people like self-help writer Tim Ferriss and early Google investor Ram Shriram. At one point, it had more publisher traffic than YouTube, Reddit, LinkedIn, and Google combined.

Stumbleupon’s future seemed bright. It was named one of TIME‘s 50 best websites in 2007 and logged more than 1 billion stumbles per month in 2011.

The decent news, is that it has moved to a new service called “Mix” but…it’s just not quite the same as spending countless hours stumbling…REST IN PEACE!
