Every brand is on Tumblr

E

Way back on May 25th, @jim_edwards of Business Insider claimed in this article that very few brands were actually on Tumblr. (Yes. I realize it’s almost July 25. I’ve been busy.) The article goes on to say that many brands that are on Tumblr, are squatting to save their URLs. What I find fascinating is the fact that he’s dead wrong. In fact, all brands are on Tumblr. No really. Check it out.

The difference between his perspective and mine is that people have been adding images, video and god forbid; written content about all brands since the site launched back in 2006. To put it bluntly, most people care about the brand recognition among peers then following the company to see what they’re up to. Unless they’re hardcore fans.

So . . . sorry Jim. All brands are in fact on Tumblr. Below is a great example with Give Chrome a home.
