    Is there a way to see someone else's stats in 2017?

    But without contacting them and asking for the current number or for permissions etc.

    I mean, if it's not someone famous, maybe I can get to this person & ask them but...

    A celebrity Tumblr, hardly.

    If this doesn't exist, someone can make a software/website that does this :)

    You can't see how many followers they have without contacting them.

    That's not correct. Tumblr API allows you to view the amount of followers. Just use their API and it shows up.

    I am also very interested but as far as I know, Tumblr API only allow us to get followers of our own blogs, still need permission if we want to check other blogs. Any walk around for this?
