Five Years of Tumblr Porn

Sorry, no pix to show - just some five-year old commentary on Yahoo's $1.1 billion acquisition of Tumblr. The concern at the time was that premium advertisers would not want their content displayed on pornography Tumblogs.

Tumblr is an opt-in model. The user chooses who she is following, and what content is pumped into her Tumblr feed. Advertisers are advertising to users more than they are against content.

Except when you're Verizon (the current owner of Tumblr) and you get kicked-out of Apple's App Store. Now all of a sudden we got standards!
