Internet giant Yahoo has confirmed that it will purchase the popular blogging website Tumblr for more than $1.1 billion.
So does this mean all the porn pages will be removed or left as is? Does anyone even use tumblr?
this is like murdoch buying myspace.
bit late brahs
pretty exciting for the young bro who started tumblr!
I cannot fathom how tumblr makes a cent of money, there's not even any ads, and it must have huge bandwidth costs.
Makes sense, it is probably the only social media site that Yahoo can afford.
from my readings since the announcement it would appear that Tumblr is a very 'it' site. They do have advertising and tick all the boxes for mobile and social integration. As well as Tumblr users spending more time on their than facebook users. It's only "downside" is the astronomical amounts of hardcore porn, racisim, sexism and self harm sites that will be a challenge for yahoo.
This is the only Tumblr I've ever gone to more than once: http://iwdrm.tumblr.com/edit: oops, I forgot this one: http://publicshaming.tumblr.com/ (warning: may contain the stupidity, racism and obnoxiousness of humans and cannot be unseen)
omg the level of stupid on that public shaming tumblr... it burns!
is it weird that I've never used tumblr? someone once linked me to it, I looked, couldn't make sense of jack s***, left. Much like twitter.
same. never looked at it
