Heads up! SPJ’s launched a Tumblr microblog!

It’s good to see that SPJ is embracing the new tools of digital media. Tumblr is an easy-to-use “microblog” that allows you to post quick links to content on the Web, or video, or photos, and share them with just a couple of clicks.

And followers (users “follow” Tumblrs) can easily share content to their networks — it’s a very socialized form of blogging.

Personally, I find Tumblr sometimes irritating because a lot of people use the platform to post stuff (like photos) with no captions, explanations, or plain ol’ context. But I use Tumblr myself, and now the SPJ, under the aegis of current prez John Ensslin, has launched a Tumblr where all the committee chairs can post content on the go.

      I think the Tumblr will feature more links to stories about our industry, and the Twitter account will continue to focus on SPJ news and internal conversations, job postings etc.
