On Monday, Yahoo announced it was acquiring the blogging service Tumblr for $1.1 billion, in what is being seen as a shift in the social media landscape, according to a report in The New York Times.

There are some Tumblr blogs that are from news organizations which promote news and other items, including National Public Radio and the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper in the US.

What do you think of Yahoo's move to buy Tumblr, and what do you think it will mean for Tumblr as an outlet for journalism? Are you excited for it or are you concerned?

Let me know what you think. You can leave a comment below, post on my Facebook page or tweet me.
