What is an Interest Filter?

Content Ratings tell StumbleUpon what kind of Stumbles you would like to see. Content Ratings also limit how you can interact with other Stumblers. Adult Content Ratings allow Stumblers to add Adult Interests.

 
What are the different Interest Filters?

Currently there are 3 levels of Interest Filters.

- G: This is the default rating for Stumblers. No offensive content. You will not be able to add Adult Interests. You can follow, message, and share with R rated Stumblers and they can follow, message and share with you. You can message Stumblers with X ratings but you cannot follow them, view their Profile or share with them and they cannot message you.

- R: The R rating allows Stumblers to add some non-explicit Adult Interests such as Adult Humor and Nude Art. Contains some nudity, extensive profanity or graphic violence. Stumblers with an R rating can follow, message and share with G-rated users. They cannot follow or view the Profiles of X rated users but they cannot message them. X rated users can follow R rated users but they cannot message or share with them.

- X: Stumblers with an X rating can Add explicit Adult Interests.These Interests contain pornography, excessive nudity or violence, or a nude Profile picture. They can follow any other Stumbler but they cannot message or share with G or R rated users.

How does my Interest Filter affect my connections with other Stumblers?
As mentioned above, by having an Adult Interest Filter you limit your ability to interact with most Stumblers. While R-rated users can still participate normally, X-rated Stumblers can only communicate with each other. Additionally, you must be Following an Adult Interest in order to Stumble it. To learn how to hide Adult Interests and Likes go here.

 

What is a Content Filter?
Content Filter settings tell StumbleUpon what kind of media to include and exclude from your Stumbles. For example, if you do not want to see video pages, you can filter those out.

 

How do I update my Content Filter?
To update your Content Filter go to your Settings page and click the Stumbles tab https://www.stumbleupon.com/settings/stumbles. Once there uncheck the boxes next to the types of Stumbles you no longer want to see and then click Save Settings at the bottom of the page.
