著名的轻博客Tumblr成立只有四年时间,但是该网站托管的博客数超过了已有八年历史的WordPress.com。一月份时Tumblr上有700万个独立博客,到目前为止,该网站上的博客计数器显示已有20873182个博客,比WordPress.com上的博客数「20820425」大约多出了8.5万个。虽然WordPress.com的计数器中没有计入通过WordPress.org自己搭建的Wordpress博客。但对于一家成立只有四年的网站来说,Tumblr的发展速度仍值得刮目相看。最近Tumblr用户增长速度很快。另外一些娱乐、新闻和时装界的知名公司也开始入驻Tumblr,并且他们使用Tumblr的方式和使用WordPress.com的方式截然不同。五月份,Tumblr创始人David Karp在博客中说Tumblr日PV达到了2.5亿,09年时这还是Tumblr一个月的PV,而今天,另一个数字更让人震惊。Tumblr董事长John Maloney在博客中说,Tumblr现在每个月的PV达到了84亿,一个月前这个数字还是70亿,如果你看一下Quantcast的公开数据,Tumblr的增长就像火山喷发一样。
Tumblr十分看重可定制性及易用性,所以注册/登录页面极为简洁。用户可以向他们的Tumblr添加七种类型的内容。Tumblr主要的页面是“Dashboard”,显示所有跟随用户的更新。在这个界面上用户可以将某篇文章标注为喜欢或是转发,这些都和Twitter很类似。Tumblr的用户体验因此也非常好,85%的注册用户都留在了Tumblr,远高于Twitter的40%。除了在Tumblr网页上发布内容,Tumblr还支持通过小书签,电子邮件,AIM聊天机器人,甚至是拨打Tumblr的电话来更新。此外Tumblr可以自动将内容同步到Facebook和Twitter。Tumblr可以绑定域名也是它的一大亮点,使得用户可以在自己的域名下发布文章。当然轻博客如此受到大家追捧自然也少不了一些模仿者。我们知道的新浪已经开始了微博客的推广。可以想象不久之后Tumblr或许也将变成无.法.访.问的结局!下面是70多个优秀的非常棒的Tumblr主题,他们有免费的也有收费的,你能从中发现轻博客的主题似乎确实有那么一点轻灵的味道!置于他会不会成为未来网络的主流?!就让我们拭目以待吧。
