    Tumblr is a lot of fun though. We have fedi versions of a lot of sites but no real alternative to Tumblr

      Because demand is low, because tumblr is still pretty good?

        Tumblr was awful for Discourse™️, there are some legendary headass takes originating from there. A lot of those people moved to Twitter after the Tumblr porn ban, and it slowly has gotten less insufferable.

        I’m really surprised that people don’t make the connection that Twitter Discourse™️ is Tumblr Discourse™️ but short form. I genuinely think Twitter got magnitudes worse after the Tumblr migration, especially if you’re on the music/media/fandom side.

          Tumblr was awful for Discourse

          I don’t find it really good for that now, either. It’s fun for just blasting out random thoughts and forgetting about it as well as mindlessly looking at others; but actually trying to communicate on that site is awful.

          This right here is easier, more intuitive, etc.

            The height of irony that Tumblr is better than Twitter at what Twitter was originally designed for.

        Fair enough, any site can take a dark turn tho

          They kept trying to push inane video short things for awhile, but everyone in tumblr fucking haaaated it so much they shut that down after a few months. They try to make the site worse, everyone revolts.

            It wasn’t the only controversy, and I’m not even much a Tumblr user that would know its history.

            But it hasn’t really enshittified like other social media.

      in fact, tumblr itself may be a part of the fediverse someday!

      wether or not we should want that is another topic.

        Seems compatible to me, as long as the company itself isn’t doing anything too crazy.

          my biggest problem with tumblr is that it has a big TERF community

          as a trans woman, I’m pretty reticent about federating with them

            It’s weird; there’s a huge trans presence on Tumblr, but also a large terf presence too. Part of the reason I like Lemmy/liked Reddit is that communities form that are supportive; I post to a group of people who have sought this space out, rather than to a group of individuals, some of whom might see it randomly and be rabidly unpleasant.

              yeah Tumblr is a double-edged sword. the queer community there is incredible and I want to be a part of it, but the TERFs are also omnipresent and numerous, and the moderation doesn’t do much to stop them…

    tumblr is the purest of all social media sites, you post what you want, there’s almost no active realtime interaction, someone likes your shit, they can rebagel it, no muss no fuss

    Like riding a moped or banging skank:

    A lot of fun unless someone sees you.
