The Social Media
What Is It?
Tumblr is a social media site where the user can create blogs and post text, multimedia and links on their blog. The user can also view and follow others' blogs.
Pros and Cons
- Users can make their blogs private
- Users can block other users
- If a user searches terms like "depression", "anxiety" and "suicide" Tumblr brings up resources like the National Suicide Lifeline
- Tumblr is easy to use
- It can be used to advertise businesses
- Tumblr has a young community (over 50% teenagers)
- Self-harm/suicidal content
- Adult content
- Users can't self-host their blogs, so if tumblr goes down, user's blog goes down too
- Users cannot delete posts after they hit submit
