Is Tumblr launching live video tonight?

That’s right. Insert countdown. Now. We think this could be big news. Yahoo-owned blogging platform Tumblr are set to introduce a new element for their users: live video. We still just about have Meerkat, Periscope is going strong and Facebook recently upped their game when it comes to live video content. BuzzFeed held an afternoon with political leaders from both sides of the EU Referendum via Facebook Live just over a week ago; what can Tumblr do that is any different? We know very little about this launch, but it is all set to be revealed at 9pm tonight! Apparently.

As you can see for yourself, there looks to be a lot happening (possibly). Will we see a very big thing inflated in a very small room? Will we witness a live broadcast from Mars? Or is this all a hoax? A lot of buzz has started to form around this, but all we really know is that, whatever it is; it will launch on Tuesday 21st June! Do you think this is real? Is there room in the market for yet another option to live broadcast your inner thoughts to the world? Tumblr is a platform for the young, so maybe, just maybe they need to adapt to Snapchat’s recent live offering? We will find out. Tonight.
