Can Parappa say the N word?
Now towards the end of 2019, with the porn ban still in place and many escaping to twitter what has become of Tumblr? Has the site started to die as people predicted it would? Why or why not?
Tumblr had 11.5b posts made on it last year, currently it's at 1,630 posts per second.
Tumblr is a lot more alive then Kiwifarms is.
Plus does that number reflect only original posts/replies or does it include simple reposts?To be fair, is number of posts an adequate measure to decide active users? That place is infested with crytalking and minute-by-minute life updates from attention whores...
I still see like 50+ posts a day from the five or so nature photography blogs I follow. Tumblr is still pretty widely used for art and photography sharing by anyone who doesn't make lewd content.
Also there's still a shit load of very active wacko communities on there but I usually ignore them. It may be less popular than it used to be, but it's not going to die naturally. The community is too invested and there's no real competition in the microblogging sphere that offers the features tumblr does (when they work, at least).
That’s a good point. Is it possible that tumblr could become “normal” when all the crazy people flock to twitter?
