Stumbleupon slipped out a new interface feature during the last 24 hours, and whilst I wouldn’t regard it as ground breaking, it is actually useful, though they could have made it a little better.
The My Shares feature is hidden in your inbox
Clicking through reveals a history of messages you have previously received through the “Send To” interface on the toolbar. If you haven’t yet viewed items that have been sent to you, they won’t be shown on this page.
I must admit it was a little bit of a challenge grabbing a screenshot which didn’t contain any self-promotional messages as a lot of my online friends use the Send To feature to make me aware of articles they have written and I might have missed.
So what I did was ask my Twitter friends to send me a few links – this was also complicated, because to send links through StumbleUpon, there needs to be a mutual friendship, and I have been maxed out with 200 friends for over 6 months, and that did not include many of the friends who responded to my plea for help – so I had to go culling long-term friends just to grab a screenshot.
I would like to thank my Twitter friends of their help

A few others offered to help or try to help but had technical or other problems.
What Is Wrong With Stumbleupon My Shares?
Just like the messaging, it only shows one side of the conversation
Sometimes the Send To feature can result in some real backwards and forwards conversation, 4 or 5 messages. I certainly need to have a visible record of the messages I have sent people somewhere, not just what they have sent me.
I think it could also benefit from other features such as specific search
I am glad Stumbleupon continues to add a few more features
