SHARE TO SAVE TUMBLR!
- Let’s try and get 100k notes
A review by one of the folks sums it up perfectly:
“What worries me about Yahoo! buying Tumblr is how it would choose to incorporate the website into its email and homepage features. One of the reasons why Tumblr is so unique is because it’s a niche market. By adding more users who don’t fit into this niche, it would make it more difficult for communities to develop within Tumblr, and Tumblr would have to change to accommodate these new users. Tumblr as a website is not the kind that you can sign up for in a day and be on your way. It is a website crafted so that you can immediately post but must spend several weeks, sometimes even months, to build a community. With new users who would not be willing to spend time growing a community, Tumblr would have to be changed, which would alienate its current users. Those users have spent time and effort to make Tumblr what it is today, and they are the ones who spend time on the website daily. A user who is checking onto Tumblr because it’s attached to their homepage is not going to be as strong of a user nor as dedicated. By changing the website to suit this new user, you would lose the strong users while building an undedicated usership.
To any website that would think of buying Tumblr, they must understand that it is a website that cannot be changed to make it more user friendly to a casual blogger. I think that many Tumblr users would be less worried about a buy-out if they were promised that their communities and ways of using Tumblr would not be changed. No one is going to mind Yahoo! buying the website and gaining a few extra million dollars per year from the minimal advertising; what we will be upset with is if a company like Yahoo! then changes the website to increase casual users and decrease dedicated users. Yahoo! would gain nothing by losing this “cool” group of bloggers in an age group they so desperately want to reach, so they must cater to these individuals by leaving the website exactly as is.” - houseoftombombadilAs much as is does sound like a load of bullshit for someone to buy Tumblr, it’s a possibility. I Personally think it should stay independent and I hope David Karp keeps a hold of it like his own child. Or we make enough noise to where such major changes (if bought) will not happen. I would hate to see Tumblr turned into an advertising dump.We’re not a ‘hip fad group’ to be marketed to. I hate the fact that’s all we look like to businesses in the end.
reblogging again for this ^
Lana Parrilla is the sexiest woman alive.
I damn totally agree with you, my thoughts exactly. The only thing that really bother me to no end was trying to figure…
I’m not even giving it a chance.
I mean I can’t stand Jefferson and I have a feeling that Rumple and Son will have a part in the story since they seem to be in every fucking story.
Of course Rumpel would be in every story, it would seem he has to be in everyone’s life. And Neal is the same, like father like son. What Wonderland wont have is a Regina, someone to blame everything on. And a Snow, someone who cant do wrong. Im sure Alice is going to be Emma, the savior.
I have a strange habit of reading different ships just for the sake of a good read. Red Swan Queen is an awesome trio…
I’m not tuning into Wonderland. The only good part of Wonderland was Cora.
I damn totally agree with you, my thoughts exactly. The only thing that really bother me to no end was trying to figure if Jen was doing herself or did the creators made it that way or something….. This season was awfully written. They better get their shits together, either by hiring new writers or whatever bc season 2 could have been way better.
After this season of ouat in general is pushing me away of wanting to watch Wonderland. Not fan of Alice in Wonderland in general but seeing the scene in OUAT of showing the past, the graphics were awful. The only way this show will be any good is if the graphics and scripts are at least decent. Right now Im debating if to watch it or not, maybe one ep just to see.
