[Tumblr] rocks! Why? Because unlike Facebook, I have a clean slate. Instead of being associated with my name and my real life being, I am a newly founded pseudonym if I so choose. No one knows that page is mine except for the selective friends I may choose or ask to follow me. But Tumblr isn’t about seeing what my friends are up to. In fact, I know the creators of less than a handful of the dozens of blogs I follow. Because of this, it turns into a tool for discovery, following members of the community who share my interests versus my friends who can get boring seeing as, at least during the school year, I know what’s going on in their lives every day. But these bloggers, who live lives I don’t see first hand, are neat to read about; they voice opinions that I care about and are hard to find organized anywhere else in such a way, and they share new things that few of my friends know about (which is why I mostly reblog: passing along the things that I love).

An anonymous teenager on Quora explains why a parent’s “15-year old daughter wastes hours upon hours everyday mindlessly scrolling rapidly through her ‘endless’ tumblr stream.” Quora: How do teenagers waste hours upon hours consuming Tumblr?

FJP: Only thing we might add: it’s not just teenagers that spend hours endlessly scrolling.
