Tumblr Friends Facebook, Integrates Timelines, News Feed and Ticket Capabilities

Filed as News on April 3, 2012 1:33 pm

Tumblr FacebookTumblr on Monday announced that the world’s fastest growing blogging platform has friended Facebook, using the company’s Open Graph API to allow for post sharing via Facebook Timeline, News Feed and Ticker.

Under the company’s new plan users can toggle “Send to Facebook” when posting, share replies on their Facebook Timeline and Share Likes on the Timeline. Each option is also lumped together so you don’t end up with a ton of Tumblr replies all over your Facebook account.

Users can find the new options in the blog settings administrator area. If you have already connected Facebook to your blog you’ll be prompted to upgrade in order to receive the new features.

As should be expected the integration is completely optional so users are not forced to open up their posts to Facebook.

In the meantime Tumblr is hoping users will auto share their posts as a means to grab more traffic through social media sharing. The more content that is shared the better off Tumblr will be. 

With Tumblr recently surpassing 20 billion posts and 50 million blogs we can likely expect to see many more shares from our friends without cluttering Facebook pages with auto-updates.

Will you be integrating your Facebook account with Tumblr posts?
