Tumblr was worth the 1.1b when it allowed porn. What is even the point of it now?
> **Verizon Taking Its Final Huge Bath On Marissa Mayer’s Yahoo Legacy**
I understand what all those words mean individually but I don’t understand what that sentence means.
I miss yahoo chat.
The only good bit of yahoo and they close it down.
don’t worry, they’ll pass on the losses to costumers
1.1b to 3m lol. 3m is a rounding error for Verizon.
That’s what happens when you get rid of porn
Shouldn’t have got rid of porn
I started to truly despise her the moment I read that she was going backwards on telecommute policies but conveniently had a nursery installed adjacent to her office.
People are saying ‘oh maybe they’ll bring back porn!’ But as someone who still regularly uses tumblr (unfortunatly lol) they never really got rid of it in the first place.
Whatever algorithm they put in place to detect + block it is GOD awful. Any picture that has too much skin tone color is gone. I remeber when the ban first started people would just post pics of solid ‘nude’ colors & they would get flagged immediately. They drove people away from the website in herds & yet the pornbots are STILL THERE and STILL ACTIVE. I get followed by one or two everyday, and if anything it’s gotten worse since the ban.
Tumblr is a joke.
Tumblr’s porn was worth nearly a billion dollars.
That’s what happens when you ban porn.
And no one was surprised. This exact scenario is what a huge number of people were predicting here when the initial purchase was announced. Yahoo management just doesn’t know how to actually manage an online community and it only continued to get worse under Mayer.
Since they were already taking an almost 100% loss on it, they really should have had some fun with it and given it to one of their cell phone customers for free. Just pull a phone number out of a hat and go, “Congratulations, FeculentUtopia! Your subscription for the month is paid, and you’re now the lucky owner of Tumblr!”
I would love to see a list of Yahoo’s failures.
Wait… How is it only worth 20million?
I mean, you took away the porn…
One half of Tumblr was a disgusting shithole. Then they took away the other half, the porn.
It was actually sold [for $3 million](https://twitter.com/danprimack/status/1161038705295089664). What a joke of an acquisition by Yahoo.
Sure is a good thing over 90% of the user base (read as porn lovers) were effectively told to fuck off (no pun intended) recently. I promptly dumped 400+ followings and closed my account… Never to return. What a great idea! Destroy customer loyalty then buy it.
And for being a complete fuck-up she was paid many, many millions.
What the fuck did Verizon think was going to happen? Is there a secret underground billionaire cult that agrees to buy zombie companies to parade them around for a few more years before taking a write down on someone else’s dime?
Watch Verizon shatter like HP did after they bought Autonomy.
Tumblr’s new owner on adult content: “If people want big policy changes here, put pressure on app stores of [@Apple](https://twitter.com/Apple) and [@Google](https://twitter.com/Google), no one else has any leverage.”
Purchaser will allow porn again and it will be worth a billion again
