Tumblr Adds Buy Button and More!

Tumblr, the fastest growing social network, has announced a new feature targeting a more social way of e-commerce. The platform adds action buttons like “Buy”, “Pledge” and “Do Something”, when someone shares a link from Etsy, Artsy, Kickstarter and Do Something.

Well, these are the ones for now.

Obviously, Tumblr is tired of being simply a content source and decided to make a move through binding e-commerce. What’s better is that the button is for everyone, not just business accounts like on Facebook and Twitter. When you post a link, the buttons will automatically appear on the top right corner.



When you click the button, you can set a reminder mail to buy the product.



We’ll see which other websites will partner with Tumblr and what other action buttons we’ll be experiencing!
