    lol, I am so happy I put my chips in Instagram, rather than tumblr.

    Many of us thought the same thing when they bought it - at the time, 1 in 6 tumblrs were NSFW.

    Who knows what it is now but that is a high percentage for a mainstream company like Yahoo to be involved with considering that it is image conscious.

    That amount of money for what is, and was even when it was bought, a dying web2.0 platform was never going to be a good investment tbh.

    Just because they acknowledge it as a bad investment doesn't mean it will be sold soon or that there will be wide sweeping changes but it also does not mean that there won't be wholesale changes. Sites like tumblr change shit up all of the time and anyone utilising them should be prepared to roll with the punches.

    Having said that, now could be a good time to start shifting your focus to other sites, nobody wants to be the last guy stuck on the next Myspace.

    Yahoo survived and transitioned from being a search engine to buying companies like this, and guess what... every time they did it they gambled.

    It's one of dozens that have failed for them, they probably won't do anything you have mentioned.

    i doubt they will close it, that would mean admitting a total loss of all that investments, as for the other options.. who know, we'll wait and see :) in the meantime i am sure there are still people doing on on tumblr :D
