Another one succumbs to advertising.

Ahhh slowly but surely all these social networks are getting worked! Yes believe it or not your Tumblr is ad-free no more ladies and gentlemen. On Monday, 22nd Tumblr announced that it will now serve ads on its Iphone and Android apps.

The move allows Tumblr to take advantage of the rapidly growing mobile advertising market, forecast to increase by 65% to $2.1 billion in the U.S. alone this year.

To me this is a very solid decision. While people love having these social networks they sometimes forget that somewhere somehow something has to be paid for! And hey if seeing a couple ads ensures that I’m able to continue to use these sites for free then I say why not?
