What is Tumblr?

As it's been said to themselves, "Tumblr permits you to share anything without any problem. Post text, images, quotes, links, music, and videos from your browser, phone, desktop, email, or wherever you are.” It is a cross between social networking sites (such as Facebook and Twitter) and a blog. It is often described as a "microblog" where people typically post short snippets of text and snapshots rather than the longer diary-style entries found in more traditional blogs.


Tumblr seems to have a smaller demographic of users compared to other social networks. To register for a Tumblr blog, you must be over thirteen years old.


Tumblr currently hosts over 217 million separate blogs with 420 million users, has been around since early 2007, and was bought by Yahoo in 2013 for $1.1 billion.

The spirit of Tumblr is to encourage users to create their own content and interact with other like-minded souls. Teens embrace it. They use it to pursue their interests and express themselves. It's easy to create joint accounts for collaborative posts and it's also possible to allow other Tumblr users to post on your blog. Tumblr users will tell you, it allows for more creative expression than other big social networking sites.


Basically, guys create a web page that is a collection of all the things they love. They can post photos, music, and text, as well as a retweet from other Tumblr, feeds that they find interesting. They customize the look and feel of their profile to reflect who they are. Most Tumblr users follow and keep up with certain topics that interest them. It is also very easy to interact with other Tumblr users, comment on their blogs, and share some of their posts on your profile. All of this makes it very attractive to teens who toy with notions of identity and try to connect with like-minded souls.

What parents need to know about Tumblr


Being more creative than other forms of social media, Tumblr has embraced those interested in expressing their artistic side. This wealth of creative content has its drawbacks. It is very easy to watch pornography on the site because Tumblr is a completely open and unfiltered platform. Tumblr Blogs are not vetted or moderated in any way by Tumblr HQ, which means that anyone using the site may come across undesirable content, including pornography and other pornography.


All Tumblr blogs are public by default and once you set up a Tumblr profile, a public blog is created automatically. However, a second blog can be created that can be kept private. Tumblr's creative core encourages users to interact with each other and comment on each other's blogs. If this is not your cup of tea, it is possible to prevent users from interacting with you on Tumblr. But you can't stop them from viewing your blog.


Tumblr makes rapid posting easy with a variety of applications available on mobile devices, and care is needed to ensure that active posting does not affect the effects with respect to privacy/reputation issues. Tumblr has seen a massive increase in content (images and text) being copied and shared without copyright agreements. This contains potential issues for teachers who may want to use Tumblr in the classroom as a collaborative project.
