Tumblr is a microblogging and social networking service that allows its members to post multimedia content. The website was founded by David Karp in 2007. It had undergone a few ownership transfers (including with Yahoo! Inc. and Verizon) until it was sold to Automattic in 2019 for less than $3 million, a far cry from Yahoo! Inc.'s billion-dollar purchase six years prior.

A great amount of users of Tumblr are millenials or those under the age of 25. As of July last year, Tumblr hosts more than 472 million blogs, but less than 400 million monthly visitors (a significant decline from its earlier years). Contents posted and shared on Tumblr are no stranger from issues and criticism from its users and viewers. Throughout the years, the site took steps to address these issues, such as putting up bans for certain contents and installing a "Safe Mode" (which filters sensitive content and blogs) that is automatically turned on for all users. However, there are some that may sill persist today. Nevertheless, patrons continue to use the website, and data collected mid-2019 shows that Tumblr has over 21 million new posts each day.

HEXRPG On Tumblr

HEX's Tumblr address is officialhexrpg.tumblr.com. You can access our Tumblr account from the site by clicking the semi-transparent Tumblr icon () on the top right side of the homepage just under the 'Members Online' count. If you're on mobile, click the icon on the top left of your screen, and you should find the same Tumblr icon along with the other platform icons.

But what kind of content can we expect to see from the site's Tumblr account? Being a multimedia short-form blog, this platform offers a lot of possibilities. Tumblr is mostly graphics- and text-based, and that's the bulk of our content on the site. We post aesthetics inspired by Harry Potter and/or HEX made by our social media content creators, and you may also encounter occasional entries submitted by our users! If there are new events on the site, we will let you know, too. There's definitely a lot to look forward to.
