Pornhub And Fakku Fondle Notion Of Purchasing Tumblr After Verizon Looks To Sell Dying Site
Tumblr Failing

Verizon has revealed to the Wall Street Journal that they have plans on selling Tumblr since the service has been nothing but dead weight for the company after they nuked all the mature content back in December of 2018. Two unlikely businesses fondled the notion of stepping in to purchase Tumblr in order to restore the NSFW content and make the containment zone for furries, queers, and SJWs great again.

Niche Gamer picked up the news from Buzzfeed, who interviewed Pornhub vice president Corey Price, where Price stated…

“Tumblr was a safe haven for those who wanted to explore and express their sexuality, adult entertainment aficionados included. We’ve long been dismayed that such measures were taken to eradicate erotic communities on the platform, leaving many individuals without an asylum through which they could comfortably peruse adult content.”

Pornhub wasn’t the only one interested in lifting Tumblr off the hands of Verizon.

The adult web portal, Fakku, also penetrated the idea of purchasing Tumblr, doing so with a quizzical poll on Twitter.

There’s no way to know exactly how much Tumblr would be purchased for and whether or not Fakku even has the capital to do so.

However, Pornhub purchasing Tumblr definitely seems like a potentially viable outcome given how big the company is. It will also depend on how willing Verizon would be willing to jettison the property at a loss.

After they decided to cut out all of the NSFW content back in December, Tumblr saw a sharp decline in viewership, losing more than 84 million views shortly after banning porn.

Verizon, not having any good business sense, decided that instead of restoring the site to what made it popular in the first place, they would just sell it off. It would be interesting to see what would become of Tumblr if Pornhub and/or Fakku got their hands on it. Could they restore it to its former glory or is it forever tainted?

It might require a deep probe to find out how to make it tantalizing in the eyes of visitors once again, or it just might have lived past its usefulness and is little more than a flaccid venture that will join the Get Woke; Go Broke – Master List when all is said and done.
