  1. I am really surprise when I heard this news. I mean I only used Tumblr to follow my daughter and niece who left Facebook. To me Tumblr is still way too confusing as far as social media is concerned. Perhaps this place is good for artists and illustrators but I’m not sure if this is the best place to increase traffic to my blog. I’m confuse about how to comment here and how to answer comments. So far Tumblr is on the bottom priority of all my social media.
