Discover the Best of the Web With StumbleUpon's New Explore Box

Explore a World of Interests Simply by Typing in a Keyword

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 17, 2011) - StumbleUpon, the leading way to discover Web and mobile content, today announced the Explore Box -- a new beta feature with which consumers can discover Web pages, videos, photos and more across hundreds of thousands of interests. Using this tool, consumers will explore, or stumble through, a stream of recommended content related to specific keywords or phrases.

With the Explore Box, StumbleUpon has expanded from more than 500 topics to hundreds of thousands of interests. Now, users who want to explore community-endorsed content and information about a specific interest (such as "grilling" or "Lady Gaga") can do so simply by typing it in the Explore Box.

"Millions of people already enjoy stumbling to be entertained and inspired, and the Explore Box now makes content discovery easier for those who want a more precise way to explore their interests," said Garrett Camp, StumbleUpon CEO and cofounder. "The Explore Box enables discovery for anything you want to learn about, and surfaces the hidden gems you can't find anywhere else."

The Explore Box is accessible from the StumbleUpon home page at http://www.stumbleupon.com/home after logging in as well as directly at http://www.stumbleupon.com/explore. The Explore Box is currently in beta and StumbleUpon will be working continuously on enhancing the feature to provide the best possible experience.
