Tumblr takes over the CB community.
Most teens now live for social networks. Everywhere you look, kids are trying to get the most likes on Instagram, make the funniest Vine, or create the best Twitter post.
But what about Tumblr? Tumblr has been around longer than Instagram and Vine, yet it seems to go unappreciated. In recent years though, Tumblr seems to be getting more and more popular, especially with CB students.
Claire Jones-Ruman (‘15) feels as though “Tumblr is a way of self expression, and a lot of people like that.”
One of the reasons Tumblr is so popular is because people are becoming tired of other sites.
“Everyone is turning from Facebook and Twitter to these kinds of sites because it’s not just social networking.” says Carly Mayer (’15)
With everyone agreeing that Tumblr has become more popular, the Talon couldn’t help but wonder, why do Christian Brothers students enjoy the website so much?
“I like how you can find really cool pictures that I don’t think I would ever be able to take,” Tumblr-tastic sophomore Victoria Burbridge (’16) shares.
Donya Airola (‘17) likes that Tumblr is different from websites like Facebook and Instagram.
“Tumblr doesn’t show how many followers you have or who you follow. It’s pretty much just for you,” She says. “It’s not about comparing with other people about the amount of followers or likes you get.”
Okay, so Tumblr is popular, enjoyable, and a lot of students have it, but who is it for?
Ryan Perez (‘16) heard that, “it’s for hipsters.” But Carly Mayer thinks, “It is a universal website, it connects everybody no matter what you blog about.”
Rosey Kenshol (’15) likes that people can “meet a lot of cool people on it and make a lot of friends.”
Tumblr isn’t just a place for cheesy pictures of the ocean with quotes written across the waves in relaxing font.
Anna Sorensen (’16) tells her use, “I wanna travel to the places [I see on Tumblr] and I’ll reblog them.”
“You can see news about celebrities.” Chaila Johnson (’16) shares, “and you can see a lot of funny posts”
