Title text: Plus the reaction in the Tumblverse is always 'repeatedly get hit by a dog and fall down the stairs'.
This comic plays with the google trends for the terms blog, tumblr, wordpress and livejournal.
- Blog: a website with opinions and comments
- Tumblr: a "micro-blogging" site, which has taken off due to the prevalence of animated gifs and funny photos.
- Wordpress: a type of blog software.
- Livejournal: is a sort of personal blog site that as you can see hasn't been really popular at all since 2004-2005.
As you can see in the caption and then the image text, there is no way that newscasters will reference the "Tumblrverse" because all the reactions will be filled with animated gifs of a person in a raptor suit falling over or a dog answering a phone.
It has already happened, as of November 11, 2012.
In about six months, the word "Tumblr" will eclipse "blog" in Google popularity. I doubt TV anchors will start talking about "reactions in the Tumblverse," but then again, I still can't believe we got them to say "blogosphere."add a comment!
