Tumblr is a social network founded by David Karp that allows users to post multimedia and other content in the form of blogs. Users can follow other users’ blogs, as well as make their blogs private. Alternatively, it is a place to express yourself, discover yourself, and bond over the stuff you love. Whether it’s fandoms or philosophy, fashion or felines, sadness or love quotes, Tumblr is where your interests connect you with your people.

How does Tumblr work?

Tumblr is a network of millions of user-generated, personal websites. It’s part blogging platform (like WordPress, Blogger or Posterous) and part social networking service, letting users create and post their own original content. Written entries, photographs, video clips or links to other websites, you can share all of these things with your friends and followers. Users subscribe to as many other users’ pages as they like, which show up on the user’s feed, or Dashboard.

It’s also possible to give “notes” to other subscribers in several forms. You can reblog someone’s content on that user’s Tumblr site, “like” it, or reply. To further the social aspect, authors can opt to post their Tumblr entries simultaneously, or at least link to them, via other services, such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Tumblr also features the Safe Mode to control over what you see and what you don’t. Safe Mode filters sensitive content in your dashboard and your search results. You can choose to turn this mode off.

Is Tumblr free and safe?

Tumblr is totally a free website/app to use. It has come a long way since then, and is now a much safer place. However, due to the constant evolution of new threats, Tumblr, along with any social network you can think of, is not 100% safe.

Is Tumblr a blog or a dating app?

Well, as mentioned above, Tumblr is more like a blog featuring social network where users create and post their own original content.

Can Tumblr track visitors or searchers?

On the desktop site, you can install a google analytics tracking code to see how many visitors you get and what pages they look at. However, you cannot do that from the Tumblr app. Is there any way to do this? To do so you’d have to add a tracking code to your blog’s mobile URL, which is different than your desktop URL.

Are Tumblr messages private?

 When you send a message to anyone or vice versa on Tumblr, it serves the same functionality and purpose as sending a private message.
