    Great article – I need to utilize StumbleUpon more. I actually downloaded it to my computer’s toolbar, but for some reason it doesn’t just show up when I log into the internet, I have to remember to actually click on the icon on my computer to get in to show up on my toolbar.

    My net is so slow at this moment, I can’t seem to go in and out at FB. Thought I check your articles here again. Anyway, being selfless, making your avatar stand out…. and the number of views is not the same in SU and in Triond… so true. This article is indeed very helpful for SU tips seeker.

    Me? I have been using SU since 2008, thanks to Nobert. It helped me with most of my views, I was spammed and didn’t realize that I became a spammer myself… thanks to Debra Mann. She had pointed out to me gently. I had been careful since that day.

    Through SU I realized people in the net are not robots (told you back then, I was always naive of things) I had friends and sadly some of these friends broke my heart that I had to delete my site to start over again… including my name. Sad.. sad story. My point here for your readers, be careful in using and making friends in SU. Enjoyed this article once again BC. Thank you for your support and for being a true friend.
