StumbleUpon introduced a new feature yesterday titled Widget Creator that allows blog owners to highlight their favorite “stumbled” websites or showcase sites that are rated highest in a certain interest. It’s a simple two-step process.
Who would have thought that a measly seven years ago—the year TheFacebook.com was launched—over 500,000,000 people would sign-up and change the way we communicate with each other.

Our team of experts looked into the problem and found out what was happening. Apparently we had so many posts about Facebook, that the search function didn’t recognize the term any more.

Remember back in the day when you got your first car? Mine was a white Chevy Corsica with over two hundred thousand miles on it. It wasn’t much, but I loved that car. I customized it with a special steering wheel cover, race car seats, and led lights on the inside. Nice! But eventually I needed something that wouldn’t shake violently when travelling faster than 45mph. Something that would indicate how much gas I had left in the tank. Something that was more dependable. So I said goodbye to the Corsica. But it will always have a special place in my heart. And much in the same way, MySpace will always have a special place in my heart.
