MixMaker Spotlight: From StumbleUpon to Mix, Meet Tom!
Tom is one our first Mixers who stumbled over to Mix by way of StumbleUpon. His collections on Mix are filled with beautiful island destinations, delicious recipes, and articles the help him live his best life, plus more! Read up on why he digs Mix in our Q&A below.
How would you describe Mix to a friend?
Mix is a online community that gives you the chance to discover web pages and articles that other members have shared as well as being able to curate and share your own content.
What's your favorite thing about Mix?
Mix is the place where I can share articles that have had a special impact on my life in some way. They have either made me want to visit somewhere new, try out a recipe, or think about something in a different way. Mix gives me a space where I can curate and share these articles so that other people can discover and benefit from them in the same way that I have.
How would you compare Mix to StumbleUpon?
I found most of my shared articles on my old StumbleUpon account and brought them over to Mix as it is a superior space to save them. The layout of Mix is more modern than StumbleUpon, which makes it easier to find the kind of articles that you are looking for. The key difference between the sites is that Mix is far more of a social network than StumbleUpon ever was. I always wanted StumbleUpon to put more emphasis on communication between it's members, and Mix is definitely a step in the right direction.
Anything you'd like to add?
The strength of Mix is it's community of members. I would love to see new features facilitating more discussion and interaction between the members to help grow the community. It is a new website that is still being built in some regards, so it is important for the whole Mix community to be involved in the conversation with the developers about what features would improve the site. If this happens, I am really excited about what Mix can become.
We agree with you, Tom! We're working on a place for our community to be involved. Shoot us an email if you'd like to join the conversation: firstname.lastname@example.org
