I’ve been a Tumblr user for some time and one of your random-things-that-I-see-on-the-interwebs-not-want-to-show-off-on-twitter type of folk, but I recently saw for the first time Tumblr Tuesday – a campaign to recommend users, which is the next step from following and getting followed on Tumblr. I thought it was a very deft way to get users to engage on some of Tumblr’s tools, which I never really bother using (which they were very smart to rid of the their Tumblrarity ranking – or will it come back after they aggregate the recommendations?). This also brought me towards Tumbr’s take on Directories.
Tumblr continues to do a very impressive job on a simple user interface throughout both the recommendation panel and the directories. And the best part is the Less is More mentality of only recommending one tumblr account. That’s pretty priceless when you think about it.
