Once, not long ago, whenever a parent in the United States looked into their child’s room and found them glued to their computer, they would likely be a) on Facebook, b) playing a video game, or c) chatting with friends. Especially the former, as Facebook continues to be a time-hole — so many users lose time that schools and universities forcibly block access to the popular social network.
Facebook may still appeal to many age groups from their teens to twenties, and is consistently trying to do more and more to keep their attention (apparently Facebook has even started a VoIP service to make it easier for people to access). connected via the internet), but that is no longer king. Surprising, yes, but another website has taken the crown of Websites Addictions to Youth. And no, it’s not Twitter.
Tumblr: David Karp’s Empire
When Tumblr first started, founded by CEO David Karp, it was seen by many social media veterans as a form of Twitter, except with no word restrictions on text posts, and lots of pictures. But there are more than 20-billion-pageviews per month on websites than just “reblogging”:
And yes, there are tons of images on Tumblr that come from sources all over the web, posted by their users. On a standard Tumblr “dashboard” (user homepage or feed), there are often thousands of images from various blogs that a user might follow. We’re not just talking about Instagram photos (although there are many, what Tumblr users call “hipster-filtered”) like you see on Twitter—these images can range from highly artistic photos to hilarious animated gifs. frequently used by users. Procurement to respond to postings. It takes pride in the fact that the Tumblr community accepts the use of animated gifs, compared to some Harry Potter fans with portraits in the wizarding world, because they have “moving photos”.
I mentioned Harry Potter. It is one of the main fandoms within the website, and the website itself hosts hundreds of fandoms who follow each other’s blogs and reblog related content almost exclusively for the masses. The Tumblr environment allows you to follow “tags,” which help you find things that interest you and reblog content or follow other blogs that do the same. Every fandom on Tumblr has become something of a hivemind, with very large fandoms creating shockwaves in the real world, especially in the media. More than once the Tumblr fandom forced its many anonymous users to show support for online causes and encourage them to achieve their goals.
However, what makes Tumblr most interesting is that people here don’t want to be found. Tumblr has become a place for people who may just want to keep track of a small circle of friends. Identity can be hidden through multiple blogs and users can change their username at will (providing the name they want is still available).,You can distance your blog posts from the world at large, which you really can’t do on Facebook , which broadcasts everything about you .
Tumblr continues to grow strong, a breeding ground for artists, thinkers, hobbyists, and young people who just want to see more of their passion, rolling day by day.
