Tumblr lets you effortlessly share anything. Post text, photos, quotes, links, music, and videos, from your browser, phone, desktop, email, or wherever you happen to be. You can customize everything, from colors, to your theme's HTML.

What is Tumblr?

Millions of people sharing the things they do, find, love, think, or create.

How are people using Tumblr?

The average Tumblr user creates 14 original posts each month, and reblogs 3. Half of those posts are photos. The rest are split between text, links, quotes, music, and video.

What is reblogging?

The same way YouTube embeds make it easy for a video to become a viral hit, the "reblog" button on all Tumblr posts allows a meme to spread rapidly across thousands of blogs with just a click.

Tumblr is a free blogging platform that is used mostly to share photos, designs, and other art with the world. Postings to Tumblr usually are visual with more media and minimal text. Although some use it as a means to express themselves, I do not recommend that teachers condone the use of Tumblr in the classroom. Even further, I think that parents need to know that this online hangout can be too sexually explicit and vulgar for children. Tumblr says that it "prohibits obscene, pornographic, and abusive behavior," but I have come across images on Tumblr that are downright indecent and simply too racy for our youth.
