Yahoo + Tumblr = Yablr

Yahoo and Tumblr. Yahoo buy Tumblr.

What it means and why this is so important if one company buy another.

To be honest I did not know that Yahoo still exists. 🙁 … and that buy other company!?.. OK, now I know that Yahoo are still there and still earn big bucks.

My next question: is this important for me? I don’t know.

And what the hell is Tumblr??? I never heard of this thing. Maybe some kind of… ok let’s go and ask uncle google.  I know you will say that I’m limited (in my head), but I really don’t know what is Tumblr. 🙂

Like I said before; let’s go and ask uncle GOOOOOGLE. He know everything!!!

Yes I found on Wikipedia!!

Yahoo + Tumblr = Yablr

And this is from wikipedia: is a microblogging platform and social networking website, owned and operated by Tumblr, Inc. The service allows users to post multimedia and other content to a short-form blog. Users can follow other users’ blogs, as well as make their blogs private.Much of the website’s features are accessed from the “dashboard” interface, where the option to post content and posts of followed blogs appear…..

And now I know two important things.

1.) Yahoo is still there – still exists

2.) I know what Tumblr is!!!!!

Internet is really amazing thing. Sitting at home in armchair and find out so many new things!!

    There are two types of acquisition what I understood with my experience first is to buy the competition and the second is to remain in competition.

    Grabbing Tumblr when you are loosing big foots in flickr makes me conclude that this acquisition is to spoil Tumblr to make way for Flickr back again. Google has done it in the past and Yahoo is just following it now.

    Cheers for this thought provoking post.
