Tumblr allows users to post multimedia and other content to a short-form blog. It includes a dashboard where users can access a live feed of recent posts from blogs that they follow.
Through the dashboard, users are able to comment, ReBlog, and like posts from other blogs that appear on their dashboard. The dashboard allows the user to upload text posts, images, video, quotes, or links to their blog with a click of a button displayed at the top of the dashboard.
Users are able to connect their blogs to their Twitter and Facebook accounts, so whenever they make a post, it will also be sent as a tweet and a status update. In addition, hashtags are also featured on Tumblr, where users can add topics to their posts.
