It's a really cool format, because (in theory) you can cultivate a feed that basically shoots a mix of all your favourite interests and topics straight into your veins. In practice, it utterly falls to bits and you end up sifting through 20 tonnes of worthless shit.

Just like Facebook & Twitter then? I only ever used Tumblr for downloading rips of radio comedies. Was handy for a time but there's much easier ways.

realistically, the only times I've been on tumblr in the past year have been to stalk old girlfriends' feeds and because porn led me there. It was gradually shifting into just being a big source of illegally ripped porn gifs and they had to either embrace that or kill it entirely.


Tumblr had a bit of a headstart on a lot of things and easily could have occupied the space instagram now does, maybe even more naturally. They never adapted their format when it started to show issues though (e.g. reblogging was a huge fucking plight a lot of the time, even the option to filter them out of your feed en masse might have kept me on it a lot longer)
