Add Tumblr to social media options on Profile

    Tumblr is a fairly big site for many niche, hobby, and fandom interests. There's a chunk of the internet on Tumblr that's not on Facebook, LinkedIn, or Google+. It would be helpful to have the option to add our Tumblr account to our profiles, instead of having to use up the "website" slot.

    (I just shared some of my hubs on my Tumblr account that has about 500 followers; it'll be interesting to see how that translates into traffic in the next few days.)

        I probably shouldn't have mentioned sharing hubs on social media.

        I was conflating two different things: self-promotion to a social media site whose members may not be familiar with or care about what you have to say, vs. self-identification to members of a group who already respect you from past work. They may be more likely to check out your other stuff if they realize you're the same person they've seen write good posts elsewhere.

        You can already self-promote your hubs on other sites by posting links to your articles there. (I actually recommend caution in doing that, but that's a topic for another forum).

        What I'm talking about is the social media slots on our Hubpages user profile. For example, if you fill in the URL of your Pinterest account, then a Pinterest icon will appear on our Hubpages profile page showing fellow Pinterest members, "Hey, I'm so-and-so over there."

        Right now, our Hubpage profiles have optional slots for LinkedIn, Google, Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter. There's no slot for Digg, but then, Digg did away with user profiles in 2012. (Unless that's changed?) I'm suggesting that Tumblr is a big enough social media site that it would be worth giving us the option to put our Tumblr username there.
