Tumblr is a blogging site that began in New York City in 2007 by founder David Karp and Marco Arment. The site allows people to post text, images, videos, links, quotes and audio to their tumblelog, a short-form blog. Users can follow other users, or choose to make their tumblelog private. The service emphasizes ease of use. The site has roughly 91.7 million posts a day and gains about 15,000 new users on a day on average. In 2013 Yahoo bought Tumblr for $1.1 billion. David Karp is still the CEO, though.
It is the 25th most popular website in the world.
