The VMA’s on Tumblr: Queen Bey | Above: The most popular post around the MTV VMAs on Tumblr, from MTV’s own Style blog.
54.9k posts were made by 893.8k Tumblr users in the week leading up to the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs), earning 3.5 million notes, or about 63 notes per post. And judging by the most popular posts, Beyoncé won the night; 6 of the top 10 were everything from gifs and stills of her performance, to shots of her family and Orange Is the New Black actress Laverne Cox dancing in the audience during her performance.

(Oh, and we’ve seen Beyoncé’s tendency to rule events before.)

"Of those that have abandoned the service the main reasons given were being unable to find anything useful on Twitter and, if they did, feeling that Twitter did not provide the tools to effectively filter and manage said information."
For some reason “on a break” wasn’t a survey option.
When’s the best time to post to Tumblr?
We’ve been consuming the Tumblr firehose for more than a year at Union Metrics. In that time, we’ve processed more than 40 billion Tumblr posts, reblogs and likes! That’s billion. With a B.
We’re often asked when the best time to post to Tumblr is. So to answer that question, we analyzed more than 6 billion Tumblr activites (posts and notes) from the past two months to figure out when Tumblr is most active, and what that activity looks like over time.
We’ve found that weekends are the busiest days on Tumblr and Sunday is the most active day overall. Nights are the busiest times, no matter the day of the week. Post activity is at the highest at 4:00 pm EDT; notes peak at 10:00 pm EDT.
The heatmaps show Tumblr post and note activity; each square shows the intensity of activity during that day and hour. The darker the color, the busier that hour is.
So, what can you do with this info? Well, Tumblr is more active at night, so you’re more likely to have a bigger, more engaged audience then. Particularly later at night, when the highest reblog and like activity happens. But if you want less competition, there’s not much going on in the mornings, so you could give that a shot. If you’re a brand or business, you should consider scheduling content outside standard US business hours, especially on the weekends when more people are spending more time on Tumblr. This is particularly important, because compared to other social networks like Twitter and Facebook, Tumblr is much more active on the weekends.
