Tumblr is a microblogging platform and social networking website founded by David Karp and owned by Yahoo! Inc. The service allows users to post multimedia and other content to a short-form blog. Users can follow other users' blogs, as well as make their blogs private. Much of the website's features are accessed from the "dashboard" interface, where the option to post content and posts of followed blogs appear.

Tumblr began as a blogging site for sharing photos, links and videos from around the web, but as its popularity has increased, it has become so much more than that.

Tumblr has gained recognition for the sheer number of posts focusing on current events, such as the Ferguson unrest, feminism, LGBTQIA rights and politics. Due to the number of people using Tumblr for their own interests, this important information is being made accessible to a wider audience, who may not have the access or capacity to learn about such things through mainstream news, due to geographical restrictions, age or culture. As a result, Tumblr is a place where everyone is supported and accepted, with members often posting objective, informed posts on various matters.

On a lighter note, it’s an amazing place for fans of movies, TV shows, books or games to communicate with others who share their admiration. Known as ‘fandoms’, these people discuss storylines, their own ideas, share videos, imagery – anything they want, ensuring fans feel like they’re not alone with their obsession. Occasionally, things get a little out of control, with the relentless trend of ‘shipping’ and ‘OTPs’, but the amount of users engaging in these discussions is outstanding.

Yes it sounds silly, but can something that has created such a strong online community really be so terrible? Long live Tumblr.

Tumblr is a great social network in a lot of ways. It does raise a lot of awareness about current issues, politics, and other important matters. It's easy to use, has a fairly simple design, and is a great place to find just about anything, from jokes to pictures to infographics.

Just like any other social network, you should take what is said with a grain of salt. Tumblr claims to be very welcoming, open minded, etc, but there are a lot of extremely hateful people on the website; basically, if the Tumblr collective decides that you did something they didn't like, it's a very serious matter, because they're known to bully users until they remove their blogs or even put up their personal information for people to use as they please.

Tumblr is still a great place to get informed on a number of social issues and share interesting and informative posts; it can be very addictive and eat up all your time if you're not careful.

Strange decision to use Comic Sans as the font for the titles of the website headings.

I could not find a way to navigate away from the homepage to any deeper links with more information. One would expect that the left skyscraper section would be hotlinked to more examples.

One of the very few politics sites on the internet that is truly unbiased and is not pushing neither a right or a left-wing agenda.

It is a fantastic compendium, compiled twice daily - once in the morning and once in the afternoon - of all the news that is worth reading - in a read...

BuzzFeed

Born as a clickbait, arbitrage website completely devoid of any substance or content - it somehow took that concept and made it worse.

A heavily biased so-called "news" resource - HuffPo is hypocritical in nearly every possible aspect. It preaches equality and diversity, and yet it's boardroom is nearly completely composed of white women. It claims to be strongly for diversity, and yet it practices no diversity of thought whatso...

Once one of my favorite sites to navigate, learn useless trivia, and waste hours on - Cracked has gradually descended into clickbait, heavy politicized liberal slam pieces, and generally has grown more and more akin to Buzzfeed in recent years.

The interesting thing is that althoug...
