What is tumblr?

Tumblr (stylized as tumblr.) is a microblogging platform and social networking website that allows users to post text, images, videos, links, quotes and audio to their tumblelog, a short-form blog. Users can follow other users, and 'reblog' their posts, or choose to make their tumblelog private.
