Above all else, the fact that Tumblr is free helps. However, I would only use it as a supplementary tool and not the sole tool. We have ultimately settled on MS Teams as the overall platform with potential Tumblr use up in the air in the future. If you're thinking of finding a platform to generate easy discussion and perhaps show others what it's like at your organization, it's worth giving Tumblr a shot. Ultimately, though, Tumblr is not well suited as a full scale communication platform (not that it's trying to be that, anyway).

Tumblr turns out to be better than Facebook Pages as it allows the pages to be in the form of customizable templates. It doesn't conform to specific rules for publications beyond the provided templates.

Compared to WordPress, Tumblr is much simpler to use. It doesn't require any page management skills.

Tumblr has an incredibly user-friendly interface for both web and phone so it's idea for posting and reviewing online content. It also has a much larger community, though some of them are a bit too much for me. Thankfully, by choosing who you follow and pursuing tags, you can stick to content you're interested in and are more than able to try out new, challenging perspectives if you so choose.

Tumblr is a light-weight alternative to Instagram if the user does not prefer using filters or editing the images too much. Twitter however, has better features compared to Tumblr and a higher user base, but posts on Twitter are short-lived as people tend to move on after a while. Tumblr can provide long-term exposure with posts.

When it comes to usage statistics of Tumblr's demographic, it's noticeably more active when it comes to sharing content when compared to other leading social networks. So, while Tumblr isn't selected for every implementation, it can be a useful tool for companies that target those users.

The photographic focus of Tumblr is far more eye-catching when compared with the distractions of Facebook and Twitter. There is less competition for the ability to showcase high quality photos of products on Tumblr when compared with Instagram. Additionally, Instagram seems to make a more personal appeal to individuals whereas Tumblr has the potential if used properly to reach a much broader audience more quickly.

Tumblr is different from Concrete5 or WordPress as it isn't a blog directly embedded into a website. Tumblr is definitely more user friendly than Concrete5 as is WordPress. Tumblr allows for more creativity than Concrete5.

Again, it depends on the marketing objectives and content the user wants to publish. Blogger is a great platform, as is WordPress, but they are more suited for longer form content. They also facilitate discussion better than Tumblr. I don't use Tumblr instead of everything else, I use Tumblr along with everything else. It's one of many tools in a content marketing toolbox.

Tumblr was quick and easy to use and required very little set up time. When setting up the Word Press account to try it out, it was clear it was much more time consuming to get up and running. Blogger just didn't have a look we cared for.
