The Rapid Rise of Tumblr [Infographic]

Tumblr has been around for less than five years. Yet, it has grown relatively fast from an unknown startup to an international microblogging sensation. In the past year the company has grown an awe-inspiring 900% and clearly overshadows one of its quasi-competitors, WordPress.
