Tumblr is a blogging website in which users can post and reblog text, image, video etc.. For some people it’s a platform on which they can share their own work, for others its a place to silently watch and reblog, soaking in all that they see and passing it on to the next user. I chose Tumblr because it is where I grew as a person and learnt more about the world and those on it by interacting with others and hearing what other users had to say.
There are different parts of Tumblr but the part I am most familiar with and what I am focusing on for this blog post is the social discussions side, where social justice and ethics are taken into consideration and debates are sparked by anything and everything. The reason I hesitate to use this as a ‘positive example’ is because sometimes it isn’t too positive at all, because of the mass user base, it’s easy for opinions to get lost in the mess of heavy communication and for conversations to turn into arguments. In my personal experience, Tumblr has done more good than bad, it has helped widen the minds of this generation and created an open arena for the improvement (or at least, change) of society.
