Problem at StumbleUpon, Some Features are Missing Today

The reason these features are missing is because they don’t yet exist. Perhaps, someone will correct me and show me that there is a mysterious way to access these features, but I don’t think so. Here are three features that I believe could help make StumbleUpon an even better Social Networking site.

1. IM History.
Have you ever sent an article to someone and then not remembered who you sent it to? I would like to be able to see an IM history so that I can see what I have sent to others and what others have sent to me.

2. Ability to Organize Friends by Interest. For example, you may have friends that you connect with on real estate issues, others on marketing issues, and others on babies & pregnancy. Wouldn’t it be great to not only be able to view those friends based on interest, but also to be able to send pages to groups of friends with similar interests instead of having to select each one individually. Some may say it will lead to spam, but if you don’t want to receive recommendations from anyone, you can remove them from your friends list (I’ve done it myself).

3. The Ability To Add More Friends. Why not allow successful stumblers to build their networks beyond 200 friends? It could be based on their activity or the amount of mutual friends that they have, to prevent mass friending which could lead to abuse. I believe that would provide a benefit to the site by allowing top stumblers to have larger mutually beneficial contacts.

Do you agree? Disagree? Are there any features you’d like to see on StumbleUpon?
