Okay, so it turns the problem with my activity feed that I’ve been complaining about for the past 3 days (the flood of unwanted reply notifications I’ve been getting from other ppl’s viral posts) is indeed a new “feature,” and not a glitch. 

THE PLAGUE OF SPAM HAS A NAME: Conversational Notes 

Apparently, tumblr thinks that turning our activity pages into an endless YouTube comment section will “encourage more conversations” and “increase engagement” (see: TechCrunch article). 

Eat shit, @staff

Y’all been warned. 

I got to be an early adopter of this bullshit. 

Not all blogs have yet been “gifted” with this “””feature””” but I don’t doubt that soon your blogs will also be affected. 

You won’t be able to leave a reply, or reblog comment on any viral post without having your activity page flooded with every single subsequent reply that post receives







Oh joy



@lilacnebulae Is this like the problem you were having???


#The Great Tumblr Apocalypse #Tumblr: a User’s Guide #(I have not received this feature yet) #(thank you for the preparation) #((or is it an app-only thing? I don’t use the app))
