Tumblr web update lets us write posts as we'd see them

Tumblr refresh lets us post as we'd see it

Tumblr has no shortage of fans, but its desktop posting interface hasn't exactly embraced the immediacy of the social networking world. A composer redesign pushing out today puts the service squarely in 2013. Its new web interface drops the blog-style editor in favor of laying out content much in the same way that visitors would see it themselves. While the switch-up drops some of the more advanced layout options, it should give a better hint as to what will happen after hitting the "create post" button -- not to mention make more sense in a world of full of fast-updating Instagrams and Paths. Not everyone will see the Tumblr update as of this writing, although it won't be long before everyone is all too literally on the same page.
