Tumblr Directory: Yet Another Directory On Tumblr
Remember the time when we told you about WeFollow way back, which is a user-powered Twitter directory to rank Twitter users based on categories. We have just learned that Tumblr has also launched a directory that is similar to WeFollow. But before, we get on that, here are some background info about Tumblr in case you do not know much about Tumblr: Tumblr is a social service that lets you post short blogs called tumblelog that usually consist of links, photos, quotes, dialogues, and video in quick short posts with little or no commentary. Basically, you can see Tumblr as a cross between Twitter and a regular blog.
Anyway, going on, Tumble has just launched its own version of directory called the Tumblr Directory which is entirely community-powered. You get to pick 3 tags to describe yourself and the directory will rank everyone by their “follower” counts. Sounds familiar? That is also the way that WeFollow works. But now Tumblr has something extra. You can also use the new Tumlarity stat to move forward up the list if your blog is considered interesting and popular at any time, but the list will be ever-changing with the rise and fall of new interesting blogs. What I feel is that Tumblr Directory can be seen as a great way to categorize the best and most interesting blogs out there is a quick and easy way but Mashable feels that this might turn out to be another popularity contest, so comment and let me know what you think.
