TECH: Huge Tumblr News!!!

Sup Travellers?! Are you a Tumblr blogger? Well if you are, you can expect some major changes to the service, especially when it comes to making money from Tumblr. This blog that i'm using is not powered by Tumblr but I started using Tumblr yesterday and strangely enough, on that same day, a huge Tumblr announcement was made.


According to multiple reports from different Tech blogs such as All Things D, Yahoo is going to purchase Tumblr for US$1.1 billion. It was just a rumor, but now we have verification that it is indeed a fact. The board met yesterday and unanimously OKed the deal, in what AllThingsD's Kara Swisher reports was "a foregone conclusion." It's the biggest acquisition of Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer's 10 months at the helm. 

I think that it is a good buy for Yahoo because it is obvious that Yahoo is slowly going out of business. With the competition of Google and Bing, Yahoo's relevance is slowly depreciating. I can't remember the last time I used Yahoo. But now since i've seen how sexy the CEO of Yahoo is, I might use it more often. She's definitely one of the sexiest CEOs of her time if you ask me.

Anyway, it's obvious that something had to be done to curb the downward spiral of Yahoo. Marissa Mayer, the newly appointed Yahoo CEO decided to acquire the blogging site, Tumblr. Now, we don't know what plans Mayer has for the site, we can only speculate, but whatever she does it doesn't change the fact that my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
