The median income of Tumblr users is $80K a year

"New market research provided by Tumblr to AdWeek reveals that the median income of Tumblr users is higher than that of other main social media platforms.

That means that all those businessy types who spent years declaring Tumblr’s business prospects “unattractive,” and handwringing over its perceived cultural status as a vapid, arty playground for teenage girls may now be eating their words. It turns out Tumblr’s younger, mostly female demographic has more money to spend than everyone else.

Tumblr reported to AdWeek that the median household income of its user base is $80,075. That puts it just ahead of Twitter and Facebook ($79,562 and $78,967, respectively), and well-ahead of Pinterest ($70,124).”

And if you really want to see teens—particularly teen fans—in action, take a look at the projects teens are involved in. Is it really fair to look at the teens who throw themselves yearly into charity drives and fundraising for projects like GISHWHES, Project for Awesome, the Harry Potter Alliance, or Nerdfighteria, and decide that the kids aren’t all right? Sure, teens are screaming at pop concerts, but they’re also engaging in activism online and off- to an unprecedented degree.

'GIF specialist' is now a real job

Heads up, Tumblr fans, Imgur hounds, and other GIF-lovers: Giphy, the popular image bank that allows you search for reaction GIFs and other GIFs by theme or type, has posted a hiring notice for its latest staff opening. The position? “GIF Content Specialist.”

So how can you leverage this new career asset you didn’t know you had? We have a few suggestions.

Tips for Putting Gifs On Your Resume:

1) Create a GIF portfolio of your best work.

We recommend Tumblr as a great location for showcasing GIFs in their natural habitat. Link to it on your résumé.

2) Show off your technical knowledge.

Don’t be afraid to list your GIF specs. Knowing a Tumblr-worthy GIF is 35 frames, with a file size of 200MB and a resolution of 256, will help your potential employer size up your expertise when it comes to GIF-making, as well as Photoshop.

But don’t just stop at saying you know how to use Photoshop. It takes a lot of software to create a GIF. You can list Photoshop, CamStudio, VirtualDub, or whatever capture and editing software you’re most familiar with on your résumé.
