With the news that Tumblr has been acquired by Yahoo! for a cool $1.1 billion, Tumblr users have been atwitter over whether or not the deal will change the fundamental nature of the site, and the unique community that creates and shares a massive amount of content. (For the record, Yahoo has vowed “not to screw it up.”)
While we don’t know what the future holds for Tumblr, we’ve pulled a few of our favorites that we hope don’t ever change.
This Tumblr not only pulls at our heartstrings, it plays with the idea that nostalgia can be just as strong as love.
