We know some of you have enjoyed having these features, but we believe that these changes will allow us to better focus on making stumbling amazing for you”.
Here’s how these changes will take place:
Groups: Groups will be visible until October 24th, and then will be removed permanently from the site. Users can manually copy anything they’d like to keep, or will be able to export group information.
Themes: Your current theme will remain up until October 24th. At that time all themes will be changed to a default theme that is a white background with black type.
Blog Posts/HTML Reviews: After October 24th, HTML/Blogging functionality will not be offered but still users will be able to access blog posts and reviews created before October 24th which will exist in plain text format.
StumbleUpon is still working on an export option and will send more specific details in a few weeks.
