If you’re worried about Yahoo! “seriously fucking shit up for fandom blogging” you should go check out their Tumblr. Their PR person is fielding people’s questions in a spectacular manner. A couple highlights include
- The only thing that has changed it the owner of Tumblr. The CEO and Terms of Service are the same, and won’t be changing any time soon.
- They’re not changing the colour.
- Ads might be added in the future but only on the sides of the dash.
- The only changes they plan to make are to the UI and the tags functionality (and that’s a thing we need).
So don’t worry guys, this isn’t so bad. Imagine the servers that Yahoo! could afford! No more summer Tumblr blackouts!
Everyone, I’m elated to tell you that Tumblr will be joining Yahoo.
Before touching on how awesome this is, let me try to allay any concerns: We’re not turning purple. Our headquarters isn’t moving. Our team isn’t changing. Our roadmap isn’t changing. And our mission – to empower creators to make their best work and get it in front of the audience they deserve – certainly isn’t changing.
So what’s new? Simply, Tumblr gets better faster. The work ahead of us remains the same – and we still have a long way to go! – but with more resources to draw from.
Yahoo is the original Internet company, and Marissa and her team share our dream to make the Internet the ultimate creative canvas. I couldn’t be more excited to have her help. We also share a vision for Tumblr’s business that doesn’t compromise the community and product we love. Plus both our logos end with punctuation!
As always, everything that Tumblr is, we owe to this unbelievable community. We won’t let you down.
