Is Tumblr For Sale? Yes Says Buzzfeed

You might recall that Verizon owned Tumblr banned porn, and then visits to Tumblr fell off a cliff as a result. That has to be costing Verizon money. Which is why according to Buzzfeed Pornhub the porn video site is “Extremely Interested” in acquiring Tumblr:

Pornhub Vice President Corey Price said in an email to BuzzFeed News that the porn-streaming giant is extremely interested in buying Tumblr, the once uniquely horny hub for young women and queer people that banned adult content last December to the disappointment of many of its users.

Price said that restoring Tumblr’s NSFW edge would be central to their acquisition of it, were it to actually happen.

Tumblr owner Verizon is reportedly currently seeking a buyer for the blogging platform, which according to the Wall Street Journal has struggled to meet revenue targets.

Well, this is an interesting development. I am going to go out on a limb to say that this likely if Tumblr is burning through cash at a high rate. I guess that Verizon has figured out that porn pays the hard way.
