StumbleUpon announced that it has reached a new milestone. It has acquired its 10 millionth user.

The company broke away from eBay a little over a year ago. After that, it released its "web bar" feature as well as a new version of its Firefox add-on, a Chrome extension (which last month StumbleUpon claimed was one of the top 20 third-party extensions), and its content syndication service Su.pr.

They also released a revamped ads system, which puts an interesting spin on social advertising, and a major redesign to the StumbleUpon site itself, as well as an iPad app, and new badges.

In May StumbleUpon reported 118% growth in active users since 2009, and claimed to rank #1 among the top social media traffic sources in the U.S. StatCounter also reported that it was #2 globally (just behind Facebook) for social media traffic sources, ahead of Twitter, YouTube, Reddit, Digg, MySpace, and "other".

StumbleUpon is hosting a party to celebrate its milestone. They’re hosting it on June 17th in San Francisco, where it appears anyone is invited to meet other Stumblers and the StumbleUpon team. They’re raffling off iPads and will have StumbleUpon schwag, as well as painting with Sirron Norris, and a glass coat photobooth.

    StumbleUpon is a very unique service, not only in regards to the fact you may ‘stumble’ sites that you would have otherwise never have seen before but the added benefit of submitting your own unique content for other stumblers to view. I’ve been using their service since early last year and have found it very beneficial. My own profile at Stumbleupon is http://www.stumbleupon.com/stumbler/TheGamblingGuru/
