Tumblr is a free social networking platform used for microblogging and sharing various media content. Users can share videos, photos, music, quotes (as well as longer texts), and much more.
The platform also allows you to network and meet others by suggesting pages with similar posts. Suggested pages are displayed on your dashboard along with the latest content of those you follow. In addition to the dashboard, users also receive a personal page to which you can make posts. The site also allows you to customize your personal page by changing the title, layout, and adding music, for example.
