Is Yahoo really making Tumblr “family friendly?”
That would literally take most of the originality out of this website.
the allure of Tumblr is that you can create uncensored, raw posts of anything and everything you want.
Cut that out of it and you’ve killed it.
Indeed, that is the essence and cachet of Tumblr: its originality and authenticity… damn shame.
As you may know according to the press Yahoo is offering $1.1 Billions to Tumblr.
For Yahoo maybe is the a great opportunity to boost the company and bring back the good days, or maybe not if you realize that all the community isn’t so happy with this news and any wrong move or change could lead to lose a lot of users.
For Tumblr, it can be a extremely wrong decission, first of all with the price. May you thinking a Billion dollar its a mad amount of money and you can do billion things with it, especially if Yahoo is offering pure cash.
But let’s put the things on perspective:
Think on Instagram wich was one of the popular acquisition in the social media. In April of 2012 Facebook bought Instagram for 1 Billion dollars. In the same date Instagram said it had over 30 Million active users. Maybe it was an expensive acquisition for Facebook. But hey it was a popular social network app it was growing fast. Thats mean that every Instagram account was worth $33.33 for Facebook.
Tumblr at the time I write this has 108.4 Millions of blogs, if Karp sells Tumblr to Yahoo that means that your blog worth $9.25, yeah your blog that makes thousands of pageviews and have hundreds or thousands of followers worth less than ten dollars on this acquisition. This are cold numbers of course, without having in account other values like the millions of visits that WE (me, you and every blog on tumblr) produce.
Maybe is a little unrespectful to think that we worth less than $10 for tumblr, also for Tumblr maybe will be a bad decission, maybe the idea that Tumblr it could be bigger than Facebook hunts to David Karp everyday of his life, or maybe he just don’t give a F.**

Reading through Jimmy Maher’s Interactive Fiction articles reminded me of my first encounter with the master storytellers as a teenage boy. Since then, I’ve never experienced games as immersive as theirs.
Looking back though, typing away for hours on end wouldn’t be something I’d do today…
