This tool is the the ultimate time saver for building powerful social media accounts. One of the secrets of top Diggers, Stumblers, Navigators, etc, is being the first to submit stories already becoming popular on other social news sites. For example, you can browse Reddit to find good stories already submitted and be the first to submit them to Digg. You can browse Digg and be the first to Stumble pages that are becoming popular there.
StumbleUpon helps you discover great websites that match your interests. Simply click the Stumble button and see the best websites. There are over 500 topics to choose from, and, the more you use it, the better your recommendations become!
As you browse the Web, you can see whether or not the web page you are currently viewing has been submitted to Digg and, if not, it lets you submit it with just one click.
Glue (formerly BlueOrganizer) connects you with friends around things you visit.
