Tumblr is a place to express yourself, discover yourself, and bond over the stuff you love. Whether it’s fandoms or philosophy, fashion or felines, Tumblr is where your interests connect you with your people.

— Post photos, GIFs, text, videos, live videos, audio, anything.
— Make your own GIFs. Cover them in stickers and text, if you like.

— Look however you want. Customize your Tumblr’s colors, fonts, layout, everything.
— Follow whatever topics you’re interested in. Find new ones you didn’t even know existed.

— Join millions of people in millions of communities across millions of #tags.
— See something you love? Reblog it to your Tumblr and start a conversation.
— Start a private conversation with your friends in messaging.
— Or just follow, if you’re feeling shy. No big deal.

Love this

This app is the best. Always ready for whatever you want.
Not real happy about the changes in December but the “sensitive” marker you have to click on gives a person to proceed or not. Maybe go one step further and give the 18 or older to click or make them prove who they are so you know you done your part to deter minors. Trust me, minors will find it all over the internet if they are determined. Please figure something out and let your many many thousands of users come back to something they are used to. I feel like I have no reason to use tumblr if I have to go somewhere else to find content that I want to see. I do a lot of reviews on a still fairly unknown blog but gaining momentum and the content they want they can’t get from tumblr and I offer them the best alternatives. It is sad to watch you lose so many people over something. You can protect better than in the past.. just sayin. Please reconsider, I am sure you have had plenty of rants and that is not what I want to do. I just want to give you my opinion and the opinions of many people I hear from pretty much about half of the posts it get everyday..thank you, if you read this

I don’t understand what is happening to all of the people that are having trouble with the app. In the several years I have had it I have never had one problem. I hope they get things worked out. Then they could see how good it really is and make a more informed decision if they want to stay or move on..

Could run much smoother

I agree with Erin’s post, but that just seems to be how Computers, Software and App companies continue to do business. Every time software, Apps and Operating Systems get the bugs worked out and are running pretty smooth, they have to do an upgrade to change the look and make it a little faster. Apple is a perfect example of this. They have really screwed up this last IOS 11. They are ruining the IPhone.
Tumblr seems to have had the same main problems for months. I keep seeing updates, but none of the big bugs are fixed. GIF’s aren’t loading now. When you send a link to a friend through email or messages, it won’t open up because of safe mode, even though they have it turned off. I’ve sent it to myself to check and I get the same thing and I’m positive my safe mode is off. After scrolling down about 50-60 posts, the app starts having problems loading, locking up and gets jerky on scrolling. I hate that my follow list isn’t alphabetically in order like it used to be. Also when I’ve been catching up by being on it for over 30 minutes, it crashes and will not reopen. I’ve tried numerous times with no success. I’ve had to delete the app and reload it. I’ve had to do this several times in the last few months. I feel most of these issues are from trying to have the app do too much at once like Erin mentioned in the last review. Come on Tumblr, make this app reach it’s needed performance and cut out all the other activity.

Small changes are needed

I have to admit tumblr is becoming like a parent to my writing almost as if you feel like your a little kid. Tumblr doesn’t allow you to curse or show anything racy. Not saying my own post include those things but other posts that I’ve reblogged in the past have details of that. It’s frustrating to have not remembered what you posted years ago unless your tumblr account all of a sudden becomes inactive or missing a profile photo you used to say there’s something wrong. Then you have to go through the process of saying okay now I have to deal with this, you have to put an attachment , an explanation etc. it’s bothersome. I think there should be something like that if your below the age of 18. Tumblr should make a kids version with a sure way to prove your below 18 or above 18, so that the adults don’t have to deal with restrictive measures. I think self expression shouldn’t be regulated by this for those who have seen it all and just want to express freely. If they are worried about what the young bloggers are seeing simply then there should be a tumblr for kids with such restrictions of no cursing ; nudity ; etc

Other than that. I love tumblr I’ve used it since the start and appreciate the ability to keep up and journal till my hearts content with different forms of expression.
