Yahoo compra Tumblr: l’annuncio ufficiale

È stato finalmente ufficializzato l’acquisto di Tumblr. da parte di Yahoo! 

Con un post sulla pagina ufficiale dello staff di Tumblr. riceviamo la conferma di quelle che erano molte indiscrezioni uscite nei giorni scorsi. L’acquisto da parte di Yahoo! non porterà, però, nessun cambiamento drastico. David Karp ha infatti confermato che il quartier generale o il team ne la missione di Tumblr.  non cambieranno assolutamente.

L’unico cambiamento, afferma Karp, sarà quello relativo alla velocità di Tumblr. 

Questo il comunicato ufficiale:


Everyone, I’m elated to tell you that Tumblr will be joining Yahoo.

Before touching on how awesome this is, let me try to allay any concerns: We’re not turning purple. Our headquarters isn’t moving. Our team isn’t changing. Our roadmap isn’t changing. And our mission – to empower creators to make their best work and get it in front of the audience they deserve – certainly isn’t changing.

So what’s new? Simply, Tumblr gets better faster. The work ahead of us remains the same – and we still have a long way to go! – but with more resources to draw from.

Yahoo is the original Internet company, and Marissa and her team share our dream to make the Internet the ultimate creative canvas. I couldn’t be more excited to have her help. We also share a vision for Tumblr’s business that doesn’t compromise the community and product we love. Plus both our logos end with punctuation!

As always, everything that Tumblr is, we owe to this unbelievable community. We won’t let you down.

Fuck yeah,
