Wordpress and StumbleUpon Make News

Just a couple of weeks ago at work we were discussing the format for share links, and someone commented that the StumbleUpon button should be replaced by a Google Plus share option. We all readily agreed. Apparently, we were wrong. According to StatCounter, StumbleUpon now accounts for more than 50% of all referral traffic from the top social media sites. Yikes! Where did that come from?

In slightly less surprising news last week, Wordpress now powers 14.7% of the top million websites in the world.

So I guess the two things to definitely have online these days are a Wordpress-powered site with a prominent StumbleUpon button!
