Difference Between Mix and Stumbleupon

Difference Between Mix and Stumbleupon: The hot news is “SU is moving to Mix” stumbleupon is moving to mix; I don’t know how many of you like this but yes it’s true they are moving; There was an official announcement by the Co-founder Garret Camp on Medium;

By the way, the transformation is needed on StumbleUpon but it was not the complete transformation I guess; The compatibility was the issue; It was not supportable on each and every device and browsers;

I’m the regular user of StumbleUpon and that was quite fun using it; One of the most amazing thing about Stumbleupon and we gonna is that random website or website picking feature;

Just only one stumble and you will randomly get a webpage where you can find the information that you are not expecting;

Difference Between Mix and Stumbleupon

There are quite some differences in between Mix and Stumbleupon;

  • Stumbleupon used to have random webpage discovery feature but on Mix, you are getting according to your selected pages and some popular pages on For you section;
    I’m not sure it’s just random wise or popular pages wise;

  • I don’t know if Mix is still under development or that’s complete or full version of Mix, But StumbleUpon used to have that stumble bar where you used to get share buttons; Stumble button and your interests as well as dislike button on mix we don’t get that feature;

  • What I liked most about Stumbleupon is that it used to select random page which is listed on StumbleUpon on a just one Stumble or a click we can say; As you can see on the below image there was Stumble button to discover the page;

  • The good part of the Mix is that it will show up the content relevant to you on a first impression but Stumbleupon also used to have interest section to go through the interested topics or categories that a user love to read or Stumble;

Another good part of Mix over StumbleUpon is that it’s quite simple to use and understand the minimalistic design of the website makes quite impressive, But I also loved Stumbleupon because of it’s Red and Black combination;

  • To talk more about the difference between Mix and Stumbleupon then Mix doesn’t provide API access right now for share buttons but Stumbleupon used to have the Share button; Which was quite easy to use for adding a page on Stumbleupon;

Now what is the solution for Mix then; How will you add web pages on Mix directly from your website; The solution is you will need to add a Mix extension on your Browser;

I guess that all of the Difference Between Mix and Stumbleupon; I liked both the platforms; SU is migrated to Mix that it; They have made it very simple and easy, But some likable features of Stumbleupon they have missed or they have replaced in a different way;
