Facebook versus Stumble Upon

Discussion in 'Social Networks' started by adamsmith2015, Sep 29, 2011.

    I'm starting to concentrate on doing some social bookmarking for a site I look after. I know people will say do both, but what is more effective at boosting traffic in the long run? What are the pros and cons of each one?

    I have gotten hundreds of thousands of views from StumbleUpon, and probably a couple of thousand views from Facebook. I would consider myself to be fairly knowledgable on the subject, and I think that while you should do both, one is obviously better for random traffic.

    if you ask me both are equally important, but it is superior to facebook and even if it's a lot of followers, but otherwise remains the same

    Stumbleupon, like the name suggests, shows random links to its members whereas FB is more targeted and you have to "like" a page to go to it. If your brand is already well known, FB is more effective but if not, Stumbleupon is a great site to promote your brand.

    I have used both the social networking sites, Facebook is very much famous than Stumbleupon. But on Facebook there is huge traffic so to get relevant traffic is important that we can get get easily from Stumbleupon.

    By doing social book marking, you can get good keywords position on search engine rather than traffic.

    Stumbleupon is a little bit hard. I've been their since 3, 4 months but still cant get results. its more up to luck on the other side facebook has obvious long lasting results. also SU don't hav as much members as facebook have.
