Tumblr is one of the social blogging platforms, with plenty of features to keep members involved in the community. Tumblr doesn't use the traditional comment system that is typical of most blogging platforms, but instead lets you like or reblog a post. Reblogging is essentially reposting a post that you like, similar to a retweet on Twitter. Tumblr also lets you set reply permissions for people who follow you, if you want to allow comments. When you like or reblog a post, Tumblr keeps track of your favourite users to create a list of your Tumblr Crushes. Your Tumblr Crushes are the users whose content you like or reblog most.
