People who claim that this is end of Tumblr are over-reacting. Nothing is certain.
Perhaps with their massive capital, Yahoo! could make the changes that Tumblr users are always clamoring for.
Yes there will likely be more ads, but there is also adblocker so I don’t see the problem here.
Yahoo! already has an Instant Messaging platform that they could likely easily mesh with Tumblr’s architecture.
There will be more users if Tumblr takes off as intended. Really this puts responsibility on us to gracious and welcoming. We are not better than them. Not because we were here first, nor for any other reason imaginable.
I just wanted to throw my two cents out there. Take it or leave it as you will.
It could be worse… it could have been facebook buying it up. In which case there would be a lot more certainty of forced user integration.Source: st0rmer.com
