Everything that’s freaking people out about TikTok should have already freaked them out about Tumblr
One place where we should give TikTok credit is that it changes consumption habits in a more significant way than other platforms. TikTok has encouraged an interesting curation/appreciation cycle (trend upcycling?) that you sort of see with Pinterest and Tumblr, but it’s much more effective on Tumblr.
I had to block the “here’s another thing I wish I knew before my 30s” guy because it was actually too much. And yeah, Tumblr is actually the best social network, because I’ll routinely get to see a post from 2013 with brand new comments, and it will actually make me happy.
