Is the new Facebook snubbing Tumblr? -
"An interesting observation from Business Insider: The new Facebook Timeline profile view isn't just a visual revolution for Facebook profile pages. It's a conceptual move that defends it against visual blogging platforms like Tumblr which are becoming social networks unto themselves. No longer is your profile page a list of posts and links. It's now a collage of sorts, almost like a Tumblr blog. And that's exactly the goal for Facebook. While people post very different kinds of content on Tumblr and Facebook, the fact remains: personal pages and blogs are becoming more visual and less text oriented." ‎· silpol
