StumbleUpon has been around for a long time. Recently, the social media service announced it is rolling out a new look in beta. This is a little bit exciting.
If you look at the beta, you’ll notice that it resembles another very popular social media website – Pinterest. That’s not necessarily a bad thing.
What StumbleUpon is trying to do is stay current, and relevant. That is, they are following the current trend in online web design to appeal to its audience in hopes that it will maintain that audience and keep them coming back for more. This is really what every online web property should be doing. Even you.
Web design is not an exact science. To succeed in your online marketing you need to use the best practices of today, and those best practices change as new web technology is introduced and as people change their tastes. I think StumbleUpon is aware of that.
When you build your website, don’t get stuck on one idea. You may want to change your site’s design from time to time to keep up with current web development standards and practices. There’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, in many ways, I’d encourage it.
