PornHub Buying Tumblr?

Well, this is interesting.

According to some reports, Verizon is selling Tumblr, and PornHub is interested in buying. Obviously, people are hoping that a new owner might lift Tumblr’s ban on adult content.

But even if MindGeek (PornHub’s parent company) or some other company acquires Tumblr and did that, you won’t find me going back anytime soon. As I said before, the reason I moved to my own site was due to the underlying problem of central control over social media. Lifting the ban does nothing to solve that.

On the other hand, these sites make it easy to discover new users, which is one thing I loved about Tumblr and also why I’m still on Twitter. But I’ll try to minimize my use of such sites.
