I just reblogged a few things about the possible yahoo! tumblr deal. I guess I’d rather see yahoo! buy tumblr than twitter or facebook. Yahoo! is a little more likely to leave it alone rather than killing it off slowly…I’m still waiting for the next great tweetdeck to come out.
Speaking of…if yahoo! really wanted to be relevant, they would develop a new power tweetdeck that had twitter, tumblr, facebook and maybe instagram integration…and was open to working with smaller platforms too. That is where the money is. People are more willing to pay for software/services now, and I think the timing is right to cash in. We don’t want ads, we just want to do shit.
