Before you read, check out this tumblr!!
This week in our web design class, we have mainly spent studying different social media platforms. My group (Kathdog and Bo) and I have been tasked with learning all about a social media website called Tumblr. As a regular user of this site, I thought we would be totally covered. However, there a lot of features on tumblr I don’t use. I won’t bore you with all the details tumblr has to offer, but I really recommend checking this site out.
Above is the logo of tumblr.
What I love about tumblr is the freedom to blog whatever you want. Unlike wordpress, the site mainly circulates images, videos, and gifs, rather than writing. I can find so many cool pictures on tumblr that sometimes even give me ideas of things to do with friends, or inspire me to get out into the world more.
Tumblr gives you the ability to create a personalized blog by “reblogging” photos and other forms of media from other tumblr users or posting original content. You can create a blog based on your likes, interests, and just general things that are pleasing to your eyes. Many users have an overall theme to their blog, to make it look cohesive. This could do with color, type of photo, about a certain person, or anything really.
To find and reblog such photos, you can follow hundreds of different bloggers, who’s individual posts will then come up on your dashboard. There are unlimited possibilities on what you can post and see on tumblr, which can sometimes be a bad time so you have to watch who you follow sometimes. Go out and explore the world of tumblr!
