By the Numbers: 30 Amazing Tumblr Statistics & Facts

 

tumblr photoOne social platform that I have been meaning to write a “By the Numbers” stat post about for a while, but haven’t had the time, is Tumblr.  With the major news about Yahoo’s purchase of Tumblr for $1.1 billion, I guess now is as good a time as any to explore just what Marissa and company are purchasing.

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these stats come from Tumblr’s own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100% accurate.
