StumbleUpon CEO: ‘We Refer Almost As Much Traffic As Facebook’

In the overwhelming world of social networks, it’s easy for a publisher, author, or article to get lost in the crowd. The discovery engine StumbleUpon helps millions of readers sort through the mess–generating some impressive traffic in the process.

This week we interviewed StumbleUpon CEO Garrett Camp for mediabistro.com’s Media Beat video show. In the video embedded above, Camp offered some surprising statistics about StumbleUpon’s traffic.

Here’s an excerpt: “We have just under 15 million registered users doing 800 to 850 million Stumbles a month. In terms of traffic, we refer almost as much traffic as Facebook. Which means–if you think about the number of people that click on an external link in a Facebook feed and the amount of people who click on a link in StumbleUpon is about the same in North America.”
