Music on Tumblr: Catch the Beat
As you may have noticed earlier this week with all the talk around the MTV VMAs on Tumblr, it’s definitely a place for music lovers. Tumblr participates in New Music Tuesday, and music is one of the site’s featured tags. It’s a pretty big deal.
How big? Pretty damn big: In the past month, 4.9 million music-loving Tumblr users have created 1.2 million music-related posts, earning 15.6 million notes. That’s an average of 13 notes per post.
Photo post types still dominate even in this space, but audio carves out a close second. We like to look at our favorite musicians- or express how their music makes us feel through reaction gifs- as much as we like to listen to them.
This and more is reflected in the top tags:
- black and white
Much like movies, music is something people have a deep attachment to and love for. It’s not just your favorite song, it’s you.
Is there a better way to say it than with Tumblr?
