I love tumblr! I am an avid user. As a recent college grad and a tutor who has worked with many high school students, I can assure you that tumblr is very popular from kids as young as 14 to adults. For must retailers and businesses, I would say that tumblr is not for them. However, anything that is image heavy–such as photography, modeling, videos– or interesting — comic strips, short anecdotes, and so on– have a place on tumblr. I have seen many photographers, models, poets, writers, and clothing companies who have grown their fan base exponentially because of tumblr. If you have something interesting to show, then tumblr is an excellent place.
I dont think its a good place for regular businesses. Its a great place to showcase something. If you are photographer, this will be a great place to start, but it would be wise to also start a wordpress. Wordpress has many amazing themes that cater to photographers.
