So wait, Tumblr removed Pinned posts?

imageHold the phone, what are you doing Tumblr? About 7 months ago Tumblr released a very neat piece of functionality to the Dashbaord called Pinned posts. It allowed for users to self-promote their Tumblr posts within the Tumblr Dash for a very small fee. This generates revenue for Tumblr, and gives users the opportunity to get more exposure with a single post without having to use Tumblr’s advertising. Now it’s gone? WTF.

Tumblr adds it’s stamp of approval to blogging analytics tool

Blogging on Tumblr just got a lot easier. A big part of blogging (for serious bloggers) is tracking analytics. For the most part, Google Analytics (GA) does a good job of this, but specifically for Tumblr it falls short. GA was not built for Tumblr, so at no fault of their own, Tumblr users are often times left wondering, how many reblogs do I have, how many likes do my posts get, which posts are the most popular, and so on. This will all soon change with Union Metrics.

Uh oh, a porn company is suing Tumblr for $5 million

Anyone that uses Tumblr knows that there is a certain level of porn in your stream. Of course you have the choice to follow these users that post it or not, but sometimes it just happens. Or you could go hard, and check out the Tumblr porn tag search for loads of pornography (NSFW). It’s mostly spam, but again, many legit users post porn to the social blogging site and in a new lawsuit from the Perfect 10 porn company, they aren’t happy about the copyright infringements and are suing Tumblr for a lot of money.
