More Social Networks Than You Can Poke A Mouse At

Could somebody succinctly describe to me what tumblr is and how it differs from say, a blog?

Yours, in quiet anticipation.

tumblr=blogger.

Basically. Except that it has an inbuilt culture of sharing/reblogging that makes it a little more communal.

It's a nice little piece of software - hosting wise, with an easy interface.

There's a bit of a culture of single purpose tumblogs out there which is what I post in my tumblrweed posts. My favourite is Kim Jong Il Looking At Things...

Tumblrs seem to be more picture-y than (word-y) blogs...

Just checked out the Kim Jong Il site - it's hilarious!
