Last November I introduced At Her Discretion, my first exposure to the phenomeneon of micro-blogging. Today I took the Tumblr service for a test drive and I was quite pleased with it.
Tumblr is a web 2.0 micro-blogging platform that allows users to post text, images, video, links, quotes, and audio to their tumblelog, a short-form blog. Users can “follow” other users and see their posts together on their dashboard.
Compared to other web 2.0 social internet services:
Compared to Del.icio.us: Tumbler has no social bookmarking.
Compared to Facebook: Tumblr is public so it lets you reach a ider audience, but its ease of use is worse that that of Facebook.
Compared to Twitter: Tumblr may be a future competitor to Twitter, Twitter does not allow image previews.
Compared to WordPress: Tumblr excells at creating little visual interesting posts fast, WordPress is better for the longer more pensive posts.
So you can expect me to spend less time on FaceBook, Flickr, Del.icio.us to spend more time at my Tumblr.
