    Tamblr and Raddit

    A bunch of my irl friends are ditching Tumblr for Reddit and it has caused some introspection in me.

    I'm curious to know what you use either of these for. How do you think they compare?
    I've heard an adage that 'Tumblr is for girls, Reddit is for guys' is there anything to that demographic wise? I know that it's only my male friends who have ditched Tumblr, whatever the reason, for Reddit.

    If you have a Tumblr drop a link so I can hook it up.

    I mostly use Tumblr to post my .gifs and such for the comic books and shows I like. Making them is a hobby for me anyway so Tumblr is a good place to put them. I also use it to connect with other furs and vegans. It's pretty cool.

    Here's my Tomblr.
    Watch me swooce right in.

    Such shameless plugging!

    I've gone to reddit like, twice. It's definitely not the kind of place for show casing artwork xD
    Tumblr on the other hand is fantastic for that! Even more so, it's also fantastical for finding other cool artists, as well as swell arts to look at - and it all requires such little effort!

    Oh yeah - the design and layout for reddit also looks and feels atrocious to me... Supah gross.

    Tumblr > Reddit. BAM

    Not sure what gender has to do with social media websites about just posting whatever you want.
    Applying that sort of thing to something like tumblr or reddit sounds like simple dumbassery to me xP

    Really - like, what? You have a penis so this means you should be using Reddit dur durrr

    Haha where did you even hear that. That's so silly.


    At any rate, primarily, Tumblr is for showing off stuff and reddit is for actual discussions. Obviously you can do either in both but Tumblr was designed to specifically get a piece of content as much exposure as possible, whereas reddit is more 'community' minded where you link to content and can discuss it in detail.

    Both websites are meant to cater to people with "specific interests" but I find tumblr just does that better. You can't pick and choose what you want to see on Reddit the way you can on tumblr

    plus the layout is actually tolerable lmao

    OT: I've only been to Reddit like once or twice?
    Didn't like it that much. I prefer the organization of Tumblr for media sharing, and the format of forums for actual discussion.

    I have a few Tumblr blogs, so pick your poision:
    [Personal blog]
    [Ludwig ask blog / RP shit]
    [Art blog]

    Out of curiosity, what do you think the subscribe button does in reddit?

    Can't say much about Reddit since I've only visited like twice, though both times I've no idea where the hell anything was on it. I do have a tumblr, and is much more easier for me to navigate around. As for gender wise, uh I've never heard of that before. ;x

    Oh you know him? He must get around


    On topic of the thread, I always liked Tumblr for posting art, but I'll admit I have no clue how to browse properly.
