Unlike other social media sites, StumbleUpon started out as a toolbar that would show you random pages based on what tags you had indicated an interest in.
Since people never really know what they are going to see through the toolbar, StumbleUpon uses a helpful preference option that allows you to filter what level content you wish to be shown.
This is where many people make one of the biggest mistakes you can make on StumbleUpon, by selecting to see R-Rated or X-Rated content.

I did an article a little while back for FeedFront Magazine that was published recently.
If you check out page 5 of the magazine, linked in PDF format below, then you can see the article.
There will be a panel at the coming Affiliate Summit in NYC on August 10th, 2009, that will include Chris Winfield, Todd Malicoat, and myself, Brent Csutoras… all talking about how affiliate marketers can succeed using social media marketing.
In many cases, the affiliate marketer’s goal is no different than the webmasters, product owners, or SEOs… It is all about getting more visibility, traffic, and links.
What better way to get all three than with social media!
So this year, after talking with the people at Affiliate Summit, we have decided to put together a really awesome panel to help affiliates better understand how to make social media work for them.
