Bearing in mind that the internet is the only mass electronic medium of communications we have access to and that we must begin to make optimized use of it, I got this off a lefty-lib site:
“If there’s an opposite to 4Chan, it’s Tumblr, a popular sharing and blogging network infused with unbridled enthusiasm, idealism, fandom and confession. (On Facebook you “like” something by clicking a thumb’s-up con; on Tumblr, you click a heart.) If 4Chan feels like Guyville, Tumblr is the favored online home for young women.”
Okay, I know that most young White men on the internet end up in World of Warcraft and other gaming sites that give them fantasies of power and control over their lives. More vaguely, I have heard that young White women gravitate towards stuff that gives them the illusion of romance and emotional freedom of the kind politically correct society no longer allows them, although I don’t know. A 61 year-old man stalking young girls on the internet even if it’s just to learn about their political demographics and political communication and interaction is a little too on the creepy side for my taste.
This is the first I’ve heard of young White women hanging around on Tumblr, and although I have heard the name, I don’t even know what that is. I know vaguely that it is supposed to be Yahoo’s answer to Facebook and that it’s mostly “micro-blogs” and file uploads, i.e. sounds like a Facebook-ish type presentation. Beyond that I don’ know; I googled it, went to the site, and found a sign-up screen, and I don’t have time to screw around with still more internet in my life, so you guys are going to have to carry the ball on this one. I don’t have the time or the technical expertise to get too much further into the computer world, plus like most old people, my ageing brain has become highly ossified and change-resistant, and I have great difficulty in learning new software–actually learning Audacity’s going to be a nightmare for me.
So, can you guys out there, such few as you are, who are actually doing active internet promotion of the NF–can you look into this and see if there is some way we can use this Tumblr thingie to get our message in front of some of the female of the species?
