Tumblr is a popular social media platform and microblogging site with more than 460 million blogs on its platform. In Europe, users must be over 16 to sign up, but the age limit is just 13 elsewhere. However, in both cases, age verification is limited. The platform is designed to share different types of content, such as videos, photos or short articles. People can react to each other’s content, share items they like and even interact through the platform with direct messages.

In this guide, you'll find tips on avoiding potential risks such as adult content, oversharing and fake news.
