Yesterday I learned all about Tumblr http://www.tumblr.com/from one of my students. It is very popular with young people and is enjoying exponential growth. Its main points of difference are:
- It is very easy to use for blogging.It is very much a diary for some people.
- It is different from Facebook. Facebook is about connections, Tumblr seems to be about non connections.
Its good to see the theory of teachers learning from students being given effect.
