Verizon is buying Yahoo, and by extension, Tumblr
Just a word of warning. Verizon has recently announced that it’s buying Yahoo in its entirety. Yahoo bought Tumblr in 2013 and, while details are mum, it’s widely speculated (and rightly so) that Yahoo’s handling of the site is largely responsible for its downhill slide in recent years (steady increase in intrusive advertising, nonsensical changes to recommendation algorithms, a complete fuckup of the search functionality, etc.) It’s unclear how Verizon is going to handle things. They may make the site better. They may make it far, far worse. They may write the whole thing off as a loss and sell it to yet another company, or just shelve everything. Whatever happens, things on this site are probably going to change, and change drastically. So be aware.
