Pinterest Edging Tumblr In Pageviews

Cheers to the web prodigy @shl for the tweet.

Why?

  • Pinterest focuses on one thing only, images.  Simplicity like Instagram.  Tumblr allows posts on text, quotes, pictures, video, link, chat, and audio.
  • “Repin” conjures quickness.  Publish, boom, we feel like contributors.  “Reblog” sounds lengthy.  Internet denizens have 3 second attention spans.
  • Pinterest is a Facebook Timeline app which means your pins show in the real time ticker.  Log into Facebook, you can’t miss your friends’ pins.  Tumblr awaits.


  • Pinterest is searchable.  Tumblr search is confused by the plethora of mixed media content and too many tags.  Again, simplicity.
  • Pinterest users all have the same looking template.  Like Facebook.  Tumblr has 1000+ designs to choose from including create your own.
  • Pinterest is a girl’s world.  Tumblr is for “Teebowing.”
