Web Traffic News Reports on New StumbleUpon Updates

StumbleUpon has been working hard to make important changes to their terms of service and privacy policy.

StumbleUpon Infographic     They have also just launched in the UK, created personalized suggestions, and pushed updates to their iPhone and Android apps.  The StumbleUpon team knows that most of their users do not enjoy reviewing legal forms however their goal is to be more transparent to their users.

On the left side of this post you will see a valuable StumbleUpon infographic which displays the stats and growth of this highly effective social media site.

I am quoting directly from the e-mail message that StumbleUpon sent me. Following are some of the key updates that StumbleUpon has made:

“The Terms of Service and Privacy Policy now cover our newest products and features, such as our mobile and web applications and the ability to join StumbleUpon using your Facebook and Google accounts.

As you know, StumbleUpon is a personalized content discovery service, so our primary goal in collecting data is to improve the content recommendations we make to you. In our updated Privacy Policy, we provide a fuller explanation of the data we collect, how we use it, and the options we provide regarding your personal information.

In our mission to help you discover great content from across the Web, we clarify in our Terms of Service that while StumbleUpon refers and recommends its content, most of this content is controlled by third parties.

We have inserted headings in both the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for ease of reference, and made some clarifying legal changes.”

These Terms of Service are projected to be be fully effective for existing users as of Oct. 15, 2012. The update to the Privacy Policy is effective immediately.
