Tumblr is a micro-blogging community drive platform that has experienced an almost meteoric rise in popularity because of its simple to use interface and social community. Other blogging platforms may make the poster feel they are isolated or make it difficult to add music or videos and hence discourage interaction for some. To get more Tumblr followers is often as simple as saying hello to your neighbor and usually interesting.
One of the key concepts behind becoming popular in this community is to like everyone interesting. Of course Tumblarity or popularity depends upon more than just following others, but liking them encourages them to like you. Commenting on other people’s posts, and following others is the beginning of increasing your popularity.
An important rule to becoming popular on this or any other platform is to keep posting even during your busy times. Tumblr makes it super simple to post during exams, on holiday or when you are away simply by queuing up timed posts so that while you are on the beach far from your network, your posts keep rolling out on time. The quality of content though has an impact on how popular a person will actually be as well since few people are going to actually enjoy boring content. So don’t post rubbish as it will not help bring in new followers.
This social networking blogging platform also has what is called a follow-me train which is normally begun by very popular micro-blogs. By joining these trains the new blog can increase their popularity quickly since if you like them, they are sure to like you back. A new blogger may not be able to successfully start one of these since no one would really hear about it, but if they follow one, they too will gain in popularity.
Community sites are all about people interacting with other people so a photo on your min-blog and a complete personal profile is certain to help your popularity. People want to know something about the other people in the community and the more interesting you are the more likely they are to want to get to know you. Interesting posts and videos are a great way to keep your friends interested and increase your following.
Those who run the most interesting micro-blogs tend to be some of the most popular and they take time cultivating that popularity. They spend time scheduling posts, interacting with people who comment on their micro-blog and participating in the community. Social networking depends upon being social, getting to know people and getting yourself out there.
Social networking is becoming the standard road to internet fame for many. In fact social networks are so well-integrated into our electronic society that references to them can be found in print and on television and in daily conversations. Tumblr is social networking at its most basic, and yet still remains creative and interesting.
