Stumble Through 2012 [INFOGRAPHIC]

stumbleupon logo   Stumble Through 2012 [INFOGRAPHIC] One of the greatest inventions ever made on the Internet, has to be without a doubt, Stumbleupon. Stumbleupon is responsible for people finding websites they wouldn’t normally find, as well as destroying an entire day in front of the computer. You begin stumbling through a few sites and 6 hours later, you’re sitting in a zombie-like state, glazed eyes, finger clicking automatically on the mouse key, droning “just one more site, just one more….

Our infographic today comes from the official Stumbleupon blog, an infographic that they themselves made, showing all the most popular Stumbles of 2012, in areas such as TV shows (I’m a little amazed that Beavis and Butthead made it into the top 5 – I was under the impression that show had been cancelled), music, movies, and celebrities.  And Stumbleupon also breaks down the interests according to age-group. The under-18’s are into beauty and Justin No-Talent….er….sorry, Bieber. And those over the age of 45 (the Cardigan Brigade) are more into gardening and home improvement.

Have you been using Stumbleupon in 2012, in particular their totally new redesign?  If so, what were you searching / Stumbling for the most?

I thought you said Stumble Upon was for discovering new things? Most of these things are already popular in the mainstream. Except for “Once” (I assume that’s a band?) and the blind piano prodigy, even a hipster-before-her-time old soul in a young body has heard of ALL of these (which is sad). And I tend to fall into the 45+ category in that I ONLY listen to classic rock and don’t care one bit about Beeb the Dweeb. You want Canadian music — give me Rush, Neil Young, or Toronto any day. Justin Bieber sucks, Mr. Garrison. I’m not a fan of anything obscure enough to be on Reddit, and Digg now seems about as commercialized as Stumble Upon.

So… what hope have I got of ever finding a “niche” on these bookmark sites? I guess I better start growing some wrinkles if I don’t want to get odd looks from people for all those CSN(Y) and Dylan tracks on my iPod. :-\ I would venture that most people hovering around my age only know “Dylan” as the obnoxious brother of Cole Sprouse (or vice versa — I don’t really care). But then again, wait a sec — according to at least one of my online profiles… I’m actually 113. :-)
