Tumblr to Launch Ads Starting May 2

Tumblr CEO, David Kamp announced yesterday that paid advertisements will start on Tumblr May 2nd. This is a complete reversal in company policy and came as a complete surprise to the audience at Ad Age’s Digital Conference in New York.

One of the strangest elements, Sorgatz said, was how Kamp ended the presentation: "He flashed his email address on the screens, took no questions, and then zipped out the building."
