How to Follow Another User on Tumblr

Tumblr gives users the ability to find friends and other uses and “follow” their accounts. This can enrich your Tumblr experience so that you can interact with others and find content to reblog.

Step 1: Click the “Explore” option on the toolbar on your Tumblr profile. Popular Tumblr pages will appear for you to follow if you'd like. If you are looking for someone specific, you can search for them.

Step 2: Return to your dashboard and click in the Search text box in the top right portion of the screen. Type in the keywords, names or usernames to search for a profile. When you find what you're looking for, click on the blog name to view the main page.

Step 3: On the top right of the user's profile screen, you'll see a “+Follow” button. Select +Follow to begin following that account. You can view the accounts that you follow on your dashboard.

Step 4: If you're using the Tumblr app, the steps are slightly different:

  • ■Download and open the app, and in the top of the screen you will see a magnifying glass icon.
    ■Tap that icon to search by tags, username, keywords, etc. When you see a blog you want to follow, tap the blog's name and on the profile page, you will see an icon that says, “FOLLOW” in the top right.
    ■Tap the FOLLOW icon and the blog profile will be added to your followed blogs. Note that Tumblr has a following limit of 5,000.
