Within the last year or so, Teen Vogue has been connected to their fashion forward subcribers via tumblr. According to wiki,
- Tumblr is a blogging platform that allows users to post text, images, videos, links, quotes and audio to their tumblelog, a short-form blog. Users can follow other users, or choose to make their tumblelog private. The service emphasizes ease of use.
At least in my circle of friends, tumblr sounds similar to facebook but it is very different.
Tumblr is more focused on images, rather than constant text updates and location check-ins.
I would explain some social networks like this:
Perhaps this is why TeenVogue is using tumblr to connect with their users!
Tumblr is a great to way to quickly share information. Imagine if someone with a large group of followers reblogs a post from teen vogue, and then say 100 of their followers reblog the same post, and so on. Images get through tumblr fast.
The only problem is that sometimes if I post has been reblogged and reblogged hundreds of times it can be difficult to see the original source. Perhaps that is why teen vogue puts their mark on many of their images.
I recently began following Teen Vogue on tumblr and am loving the content. It is easy to understand, quick, image-focused, (and excuse my girlieness) very cute.
If you read further into their posts, it leads you to the actual Teen Vogue article on each subject. This is a great way to get readers onto their actual web page as well!
