eBay, Facebook, Tumblr ALL go TITSUP in me-too MULTI-FAIL


Re: Can't say I noticed anything

I know of Tumblr, but only because the name appears here and there. My vague understanding was that it's some kind of social networking site, but not what the specific purpose was.

But, like you, I thought kudos to them for their sense of humour - so I decided to pay the site a visit to see what they actually are about.

The front page doesn't say a great deal. There's no page telling first time visitors about them or what they do, to encourage people to sign up - the nearest to that is a little bit of text at the bottom:

"201.8 million blogs, 90.5 billion posts, 30 seconds to join"

So I can only guess that it's some kind of blog aggregator - in which case, what's the point? What's wrong with using RSS?
