I hate this time of year so much. The weather is impossible and ugh all of it. Plus it means winter is right around the corner and ugh winter.
I think my dream job now is to sit on Tumblr and prove half of the posts on this website flat out inaccurate. If I could get paid to get some real information on this website, that would be a dream.
" Sure,Tumblr has an artsy, hipster appeal, but its users are far from starving. In fact, and perhaps surprisingly, it caters to the wealthiest social media set of any of its rivals, according to recent data.
If Facebook is the blue-collar everyman network, Tumblr is more of a luxury destination. Niche yes, but lucrative for retailers. The high-end crowd is one of its top draws as a marketing platform.
The median household income of Tumblr’s users is $80,075, ahead of Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook ($79,562, $78,967 and $70,124, respectively), according to data provided by Tumblr. (Meanwhile, LinkedIn claims its users achieve an average household yearly income of $83,000.)
The relative wealth of Tumblr users has translated into dollars for retailers who attract traffic from the site. An Adobe report said that a retail referral from a Tumblr link is more valuable than a referral from Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
“Tumblr is small but mighty and offers retailers a visually stimulating environment,” said Tamara Gaffney, Adobe Digital Index’s principal analyst. “The fact that it produces the highest revenue per visit from mobile devices is likely due to its user base, which is skewed to young, trendy and well-educated urbanites with a greater affinity for online purchases and the disposable income to spend more.”
The average revenue per visit generated by a Tumblr referral to a retail site is $2.57 on tablets and 67 cents on smartphones, according to the latest Adobe Mobile Benchmark report.
The next valuable mobile social media referral comes from Facebook, where a visit is worth $1.55 on tablets and 42 cents on smartphones. Twitter is No. 3 and Pinterest is No. 4, per Adobe.
Tumblr’s impact on sales is one of its selling points to marketers, as is its high-end user base, which is relatively small when compared to the 1.3 billion on Facebook and 271 million on Twitter. Tumblr has about 14 million registered users in the U.S., reports eMarketer, which represents only a fraction of traffic to its site because not all visitors are logged in.
A brand report compiled by Tumblr in August shed some light on how its users make purchasing decisions from their dashboards, which are the hubs that display all their Tumblr content.
More than half of Tumblr users purchased something found on their dashboards, the report said, and 90 percent “have been inspired to buy something.”
They also tend to come back.
“Not only do our users have the greatest spending power, but they also spend the most time on our platform,” said Lee Brown, Tumblr’s global head of brand partnerships. “They are both engaged and active, taking that next crucial step to buy what they discover on Tumblr (and then post about it).
“The customer journey begins on Tumblr with prepurchase aspiration and ends on Tumblr for postpurchase celebration, making Tumblr the ultimate destination for shopping,” Brown said. “
Skull, found in France, with a knife still embedded it it. The skull belonged to a Roman solider who died during the Gallic Wars, ca. 52BC. It was on display at the Museo Rocsen in Argentina.
Whenever I see things like this, I wonder how they died. I guess it will always be a mystery.
I’m gonna go with “Stabbed through the head”
I am downloading a game and it’s moving so incredibly slow. I hate slow internet.
That depends upon the source you’re getting that from. That’s why I said “probably”. It’s also possible that Muslims attacked and destroyed it. Most sources, however, say that the majority of the library was destroyed by Julius Caesar’s siege of Alexandria when he burned his ships, or by the fighting. The exactness of it varies.
My main point was, that graph is just part of the general disillusion that has been created about the Middle Ages. It was not this dark period where nothing happened, humanity was not stopped by it. Please, look in the direction of Asian or central African or any of the many empires of North and South American history for proof that Western literature is not the be all and end all. The Library of Alexandria was a great loss and it set us back on a lot of great documents, but it didn’t stop humanity from reaching some grand point. And that graph was just another foolish understanding of history.
EVERY TIME SOMEONE BRINGS UP THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA I GET SO ANGRY.
Because it got burned. All of that knowledge, lost forever.
The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, & important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world.
I would like to point out that the graph there holds no basis whatsoever. The library was destroyed probably in 47 BC, long before Christianity’s existence, and the so called “Christian dark ages” is a phrase and an idea completely ignored by any historian. That graph shouldn’t even be in this post, for both it’s historical inaccuracy and it’s complete lack of relevance.
