Recommendations are posts, blogs, or searches that Tumblr thinks you might like.
In our mobile apps, some recommendations will appear with reasons that explain why you're seeing them:
- In your orbit means that some people you follow also follows the recommended Tumblr.
- Like [insert username here] means the recommended Tumblr is similar to another you already follow, or is related to a blog you recently followed.
- You seem interested means you’ve liked a few posts from this Tumblr before but you're not following them yet.
- Big in [insert tag here] means you like a lot of stuff with that tag, so you might like this too.
You can make each recommendation disappear forever by clicking or tapping the X at the top of the recommendation. By disappear forever, we mean that we'll never recommend that post or blog to you again.
- If you’re just starting out on Tumblr, try following some more blogs to reduce the overall amount of recommendations you’re seeing.
- Sometimes people mistake followed searches for recommendations. If you want to stop seeing followed searches, tap the search icon (magnifying glass), tap one of the “Tags you follow” at the top of the screen, and tap “Unfollow” in the search bar. On the web, just click in the search bar to find your followed searches.
- You can opt out of “In your orbit” recommendations. You can read about managing your dashboard preferences here.
- For better, more relevant recommendations, toggle on “Improved Search” in your settings.
Even though our system is supposed to filter out sensitive media from recommendations, sometimes things slip through by mistake. If you see something that should've been flagged as sensitive or NSFW, you can learn how to report it here: Reporting offensive content.
