A blogging social network site for those who want to express their opinions and be entirely themselves. Many fandoms are found on tumblr such as Harry Potter, Starkid and Glee. It's a place where people are't judged. Those with a tumblr also know not to talk about tumblr to those who don't have a tumblr. It's not a 'fashion trend' it's a place for people to be original and themselves with their followers who they don't necessarily know in real life but find some common ground with.
Facebook person: So I heard that Darren Criss guy is coming back to Glee for season 3?

Tumblr person: Yeah I found that out a while ago.

Facebook person: But I only saw it on one of my friends' statuses today. How did you know?

Tumblr person: Can't remember. Google or something. *in head - tumblr tells me EVERYTHING*

A place that's now more of a hell hole than a website. It seemed somewhat harmless when I first joined (2010/2011) but now from what I see, 90% of it is filled with hateful assholes who think they're changing the world for the better and the entire world is America (plus have a pathetic victim complex). My dash was filled with cats, nutella, and bands, and I still see that once in a blue moon. Now it's privileged teenagers and other SJWs (social justice warriors) all participating in the oppression olympics and make actual activists look bad.
person #1: *makes a text post that rants about some social injustice, including facts that are inaccurate and/or biased, and their argument is supposed to appeal to your emotions or make you feel guilty somehow* *gains lots of attention*
person #2 (a very brave soul on tumblr): *disagrees with the first person's post, or tries to correct some of their facts, and defends their position with facts from a reliable source and valid reasoning while trying to be as civil as possible*
person #1: OMG NO YOU ARE WRONG BECAUSE MY FEELINGS ARE HURT. PLEASE DIE. YOU ARE DEFINITELY A CIS WHITE MAN BECAUSE YOU DISAGREED WITH ME. STOP OPPRESSING ME.

A simple and addictive blogging medium used by people of varying ages to share content, mostly text and photos. Unlike sites such as LiveJournal, YouTube, WordPress or Facebook, Tumblr is completely uncensored with very little moderation, enabling its users to post virtually anything they have, whether it be violent, pornographic, copyrighted, or unintelligent.

Tumblr consists of over 300 million blogs, all of which can be categorized under several different styles, most commonly fashion, fandom, photography, art, humour and personality.

Although anyone can join Tumblr, its user base is probably made up mostly of people aged between 14-25, making life in high school and university a common topic among its users.

Users with large bodies of followers on the site may feel inclined to create custom URLs that don't contain the Tumblr brand, and turn their blogs into cash generating assets with the help of Google Adsense. Under the same circumstances, some bloggers may find that they can't handle the pressure of a large following, and deactivate their accounts as a result.

In 2012, Tumblr was purchased by Yahoo! but the site did not undergo any major changes as a result of this.
Non-user: What's that site you're always on?
User: Tumblr.
Non-user: Should I make one?
User: If you want.
Non-user: Will you follow me?
User: If your blog is any good, probably.
Non-user: Okay.

The end of your social life which must never be spoken of in public.
Todd: Dude, tumblr is, like, so cool!
Secret agent: Todd, I have to kill you now.

A magical place that most people think is girly. There are actually 4 parts of tumblr:

1.) hipsters
2.) fangirls
3.) musicians
3.5.) francieum
4.) fandoms/real tumblr
In Tumblr, you can't even. Even if you can, you can't.
You have to understand who francieum is to understand Tumblr.

A place where sensitive faggots rant dumb shit that they made up for attention, they're all gay for acceptance and attention. Theyre all lesbian because they hate men, and for no reason they hate white people. Most of the things consist of black and white selfies with 3091 notes for no damn reason, and how ruby and sapphire from su are "SOOOoOoo gay!!!1!1!!1!" even though they are ROCKS and have NO gender. They are also large hypocrites that hate heterosexuals for no valid reason, and yet at the same time want absolute equality
