Is tumblr okay for a teen?

My 13 year old has been asking for a tumblr account. Her motivation seems fine (to follow pokemon and animal crossing tumblrs) so i don't have too many concerns. any advice welcome but especially from parents of teens who use tumblr.

Considering in a quick search, I found "post ANYTHING", and several references to porn in regards to tumblr, I'd say no, but then again, I don't see the need for all of the social media crap anyway. Both my kids had FB and 13, and by the age of 16 had dropped their pages, because of the bullshit that goes on online.

So, entirely up to you. Do some research, though, know what the sites are about before you give blanket permission.
