Is there anything you can do on Tumblr that you can't on Facebook? It kind of seems like overkill to me. I never got the point of being on multiple social networking sites unless there's a very specific purpose.

Tumblr was around long before facebook, and it's more like blogging than social networking.

Facebook has been around about 3 years longer than Tumblr.

Yeah OMG duh!! Dexter's birthday!

And MNWT, Facebook was launched in 2004. Tumblr was launched in 2007. Not a big deal, but it's the troof. I didn't know it was more of a blog site than a social network, though.

Tumblr is Twitter for gays. For real. I have a Tumblr, but I never use it; I use Facebook the way most people use Tumblr. If I had a cool idea for an image blog or something, I'd use Tumblr... but when I post stuff, I like people to be able to easily comment on it and get a conversation going. Tumblr mostly consists of "likes" and sharing.

I like Tumblr. I follow a bunch of people who blog images I like, then reblog the images I really like. I mean, I guess I could do that on facebook, but occasionally I fill my my queue with 100s of images and post 20+ a day, I'm not going to do that on facebook. Basically, I use Tumblr to save a bunch of images I kinda like and images I really like.

Here is mine: http://camouflagecamouflage.tumblr.com/

It's mostly cute girls, naked girls, fashion, comics, landscape, and architecture. Really though, it's mostly naked girls.

Is there anything you can do on Tumblr that you can't on Facebook? It kind of seems like overkill to me. I never got the point of being on multiple social networking sites unless there's a very specific purpose.
There's my stance.

It's kind of like owning a car. I only need one. Most people only need one, and having another is just going to do the same job as your first car. Why have a Facebook account AND a Google+ account? Logically, it's pointless to have more than one. But you need to take two other things into consideration.

One is wealthy or important people (celebrities and self-righteous asshats). They love having more than one of everything. You can own 19 cars to show off even though your architect only designed a 12-car garage for you, and you can have multiple social networking accounts to show other people that what you have to say is SO important that you have to place it on every medium possible. It's a way to flaunt their status (lolpun).

The other exception is people with specific needs. I'm a normal person. I have a normal job. I have normal hobbies. I only need one car. My cousin is not a normal person. He has a full-time job that is 25 miles from his house and a second job hauling scrap metal. He enjoys off-roading and demolition derbies. He clearly needs more than one car. I wouldn't expect him to use his demo car to haul large loads of scrap metal to a salvage yard, and I wouldn't expect him to use his everyday commuting car in his demo derbies. The same can apply to social networking. Photographers are constantly looking for outlets for their art. Flooding my news feed on Facebook with their artsy shots is annoying as balls. Thankfully, there's a place where photographers can all congregate and mushroom stamp each other with compliments and criticisms. And there are other sites for other people, too; I just don't care about those sites enough to list them.

My point being... I have no idea. Wow.

I'll just stick to my Facebook.

Comparing tumblr to fb is unfair because it's easier to have fun in tumblr.
Specially when you are exploring tags.

I have a tumblr, but I'd rather not link it publicly. I do love it, however; it's much simpler and almost purer than facebook. I made the mistake of following a few people I know at university, but for the most part I ignore that and post whatever I want without worrying about how public it is like facebook.

That being said, 95% of my posts are reblogs of various things from around the internet, and it's honestly a great way to pull together all the things you like - in a way everyone's blog is a snapshot of their personality. No two blogs are going to be exactly the same. Maybe very similar, but never identical, and that's part of the fun.

I can't identify some of my love for it. It's just a very comfortable space, for some reason. No, it's not for everybody, and I can see why people may find it superfluous, but I like it.

Closer to 40-50%. I usually enjoy your redhair/freckles posts, naked or not, too. Also, you never reminded me the name of that woman I had forgotten.
