StumbleUpon tweaks its new redesign

Now StumbleUpon redesign by removing the red"X" from its toolbar.Actually many people suggested that the removal of the close button locked you into staying on StumbleUpon and cried foul since you could no longer go directly to the original content creator’s page.

StumbleUpon wanted to give a quick update on concerns over the implementation of new WebStumbleBar,said Garrett Camp CEO and Co-Founder of StumbleUpon. StumbleBar previous design included an ‘X’ button but now its not initially  part of the redesign for signed-in users. Now you hide the StumbleBar to see the original link, and simply click back afterwards to return to stumbling.

Instead of the red “X” returning, the company has added a “hide” button to the settings panel on the right-hand side of the page:

When you click the hide button, a warning comes up asking you again if you’d like to hide the StumbleBar. It instructs you to simply return to StumbleUpon’s site to start using it again:

In addition to the change on the StumbleBar, the company has also added an original link to the page’s review section on the site. The company has done this to make sure that content creators get proper attribution and traffic when StumbleUpon is crawled by search engines.

It’s great to see StumbleUpon respond to its users with actual change instead of trying to force things on the userbase. Instead of making excuses, the company put the feedback into action. All companies should pay attention to how StumbleUpon treats its users, who are some of the most loyal on the web.
