Followed searches are a way to follow searches, just like you’d follow blogs. Periodically, some of the best new posts from those searches will appear on your dashboard.
- To follow a search, just search for something, then click or tap “Follow” in the search box.
- To see a list of your followed searches, tap or click the search box, or (on the web) hit the tab key from anywhere on the dashboard.
- To stop following a search, click or tap the search box, click the search term you’re looking for, and click “Unfollow” in the search box.
Tip: Clicking or tapping the X in the upper right corner of a followed search post in the app will give you some choices: dismiss that particular post, unfollow the search, or report the post as inappropriate.
If you're wondering what happened to tracked tags, any tags you were previously tracking now show up as followed searches. But you can still get to tag pages by visiting the URLs directly (i.e., http://tumblr.com/tagged/pizza).
