What is Tumblr?

Get to know a bit more about one of the most popular sites on the net.


Tumblr is a microblogging and social networking website.

Tumblr has become one of the world’s most popular blogging platforms. It is known for its microblogging style as the content is usually smaller than the one presented on other platforms like Blogger or WordPress.

Tumblr also has social networking functions, where users can like, share and comment on others’ content.

Users can follow other blogs and new posts will show on a main timeline with a global dashboard being always accessible to make it easier to navigate the site.
