     StumbleUpon is a Web browser plugin and internet community that allows its users to discover and rate Web pages, photos, and videos. Web pages are presented when the user clicks the “Stumble!” button on the browser’s toolbar.

It is a recommendation system which uses peer and social-networking principles.Users can rate, or choose not to rate, any Web page with a thumbs up or thumbs down, and clicking the Stumble button resembles “channel-surfing” the Web.

    Aggregator

    An  aggregatorcommonly known as a feed reader, RSS reader or news reader  is a software program (such as iTunes) which is installed on your computer or a Web application (such as Bloglines) which aggregates or “pulls in” syndicated web content such as news headlines, blogs, and podcasts in a single location for easy viewing.

     The syndicated content an aggregator will retrieve and interpret is usually supplied in the form of RSS or other XML-formatted data, such as RDF/XML or Atom.

    News Sites as aggregators
    Some websites such as Digg, Reddit, Stumbleupon and Yahoo Buzz which allow users to rate and submit articles function as a news aggregator site because they contain much user submitted data.

    Social Media Aggregators
    Some web applications such a friendfeed function as a social media aggregator. It allows you to access all of your aocial media sites from on e place.
