    Tumblr

    I don't get the appeal of it. Mostly, it makes me scratch my head.

    Why do people post there? What is the point of the site? It seems like it's mostly just picture repeating and liking slogans and pictures. What's interesting about that?

    Someone explain Tumblr for me.

    you get to show off & develop your aesthetic tastes.

    it's really fun that it's highly visual. there's almost something for everyone, though. personally i find it overwhelming in the amount of imagery/content that blogs are constantly throwing at you. keeping up a blog or collection of things is really low-effort, which is good or bad depending on what you're looking for. for mere collection of images, pinterest is also pretty great.

    Women do things that don't make sense. Tumblr is one of those things.

    there's no need to be sexist.

    Tumblr is what you make it. It's also a fantastic porn website. Once you make it past all the SJWs and people searching for things to be offended by it's pretty neat.
    Then why did he put the Devil in me?

    So it's similar to searching Flickr, in other words, but with a more social aspect. I mean, Flickr has that, but it isn't used as much, I don't think.

    I'm not men do similar things that don't make a lot of sense or at least young men and boys do and young girls and young women are the main users of tumblr. Men and women are different pointing that out isn't sexist.

    Yeah its great for porn but that doesn't seem to be the "culture" of it.

    Viewing tumblr starts to make me nauseous fast. Visual overdose. I think I'm too old for it.

    I'd ask someone to explain the appeal, but I doubt I would ever understand it.

    Its just a collection of pictures. Very similar to any other image hosting site.
