Tumblr is a microblogging and social networking website founded by David Karp in 2007. The service allows users to post multimedia and other content to a short-form blog. Users can follow other users’ blogs, as well as make their blogs private. Much of the website’s features are accessed from the «dashboard» interface, where the option to post content and articles of interest is available.
