Returning to what I mentioned on the outset, the announcement of securing funding from Sequoia Capital and a brand new head of product signifies that an enormous half is going on for Tumblr. In case you are a type of who’re compelled to observe the event of the Web then this one is watching now. All I simply wrote about Tumblr may change as extra folks begin utilizing it.
