chickennobreast asked: What happened to the follow and reblog buttons at the upper right side of every tumblr page?
It looks like they’re still there! Sometimes tumblr’s servers can slow down or even not work occasionally, so that may have been the case at the time you “noticed” this scary situation. It’s okay though. Everything is as it was. The Internet is safe once again!
Facebook can (and has) collected data from your mobile (cell phone) to collect all your contact information from your address book. It doesn’t matter if these contacts use Facebook or NOT, it’s collected and passed on to BIG BROTHER.

- Create a photo post.
- Click “Take a photo” on the bottom right corner.

Urgent security update
Bad news: A major vulnerability has been disclosed for the technology that powers encryption across the majority of the internet. That includes Tumblr. Our team took immediate action to fix the issue, but you should still take some time to change your password, not only here but on any other sites you visit.

Tumblr’s loading icon is known as the Knight Rider Bar?
It’s a nod to the red scanner bar on KITT, the self-aware Pontiac Trans Am from the ’80s TV show. You’ll find it in the Dashboard HTML source code as “Knight-Rider-bar.”
Why didn’t anyone tell me?
This must’ve been retconned by our web developers at some point.
