Mostly known by the general public because of "hipsters" and it's also where "planking" began.

Tumblr is the most amazing website, designed to bring lovely people together. Those who had tumblr before it was cool will know that it is "the easiest way to blog" and the most incredible website ever known to man, woman, animal, etc.

So basically, on tumblr, you follow people and I guess you want people to follow you. Then on your dashboard you see everything that everyone you follow posts. You can then "heart" or "reblog" a post that you think is rad. Reblogging will put the post onto your blog. And giving it a "heart" makes it go into a little section called "liked posts" which is pretty much a collection of the greatest things you've ever discovered on this site. However, nobody but you can see this collection.

Tumblr will either:
A. Ruin your social life, school work, friends, family relations, sexual relationships and even relationships with pets. (Take over your life)
B. Make you feel horrible about your body because your bones don't stick out enough.
C. Annoy the heck out of you because you can't figure out to use it.
D. Be the best thing that ever happened to you.

OR all or a combination of the options.

you just won't understand.
Tumblr is life and culture.
It is the epitome of culture and the total antithesis of the modern day pop culture which is so ingrained in today's children. There is no possible way to explain such a phenomenon to others.
You either get it or you don't.

A discrete website for interesting yet random people, where you can express yourself without being judged. You can post whatever you like, whenever you like. Not everyone understands tumblr, so don't worry about idiots from school/work/anywhere to be joining.
Facebook person: I think I'll join tumblr.

It's where all the sleepless hipsters are. Tumblr is where sleep deprivation is a normal thing. Bacon is life. Tumblr people have their own language called sarcasm. Our relationship statuses is always "forever alone". And we're all cats. problem?

Tumblelogs are miniblogs — a fast way to share links, photos, and videos without the bells and whistles of a regular blog.

Unlike blogs, tumblelogs are frequently used to share the author's creations, discoveries, or experiences while providing little or no commentary.
If blogs are journals, tumblr is a scrapbook.
