Government agencies are getting on the Tumblr train too. The State Department to the National Archives, Peace Corps and General Services Administration are using Tumblr to promote transparency and to reach a broader international audience (because about 60 percent of Tumblr users our outside of the U.S.). Do you have a Tumblog? If not, you better get with it, unless you want to get left behind in the social media dust. Social Times
