Tumblr: The Microblogging Destination
Transcript of Tumblr: The Microblogging Destination
Tumblr is a micro blogging site and social media network that allows users to post a variety of content.
What is Tumblr?
Dashboard: A user’s dashboard is where they see a feed of the blogs they follow which they can like, comment on or reblog. The dashboard is also where users can upload content to their blogs.
Posts: Users can upload text posts, images, quotes, links, video and audio to their Tumblr blogs.
Post Options: When users are posting content they have the option to: Create drafts, schedule and backdate posts, add posts to a queue and create private posts that that only be seen by the user or admin and members of a blog.
Customizable: User can customize url, colors and theme HTML.
Tumblr has apps for iOS, Android and Windows Phone. Users can also use Bookmarklet, which once dragged to a user's bookmark bar, allows them to share items they see on other websites on Tumblr.
There is a meetup section of the Tumblr website where users can sign up to host a meetup. Tumble then creates a listing for the event and sends the organizer a free meetup kit
Tagging: With each Tumblr post users have the option of tagging it. By using a tag (#) users can find specific types of content.
Tumblr was created in 2007 by David Karp when he was 19-years-old who was looking to build upon existing tumbleblogging and create a simple, visual based blog platform that he would actually use.
