Posterous vs. Tumblr: A Head to Head

Posted using ShareThis

I’m in the process of re-designing our school website.  When I first started at SMS, it was the first major project that I undertook. What a disaster. However, at the time, it was ahead of the curve. Hard to believe that over four years ago, RSS was still in its infancy.

Anyways, as I look to re-build this summer, I’m trying to position us ahead of the curve once again. To just be playing the social media game, we need an RSS feed, a Twitter feed, a FaceBook page, a LinkedIn profile, a Flickr account, and video on both Vimeo as well as YouTube. The question, though, is what else?

For the past few weeks, I’ve been watching the rise of Posterous. Originally, I had thought about moving our daily news site, the Daily Mike, to Tumblr. However, now I’m starting to think otherwise. My only issue, though, is that I cannot seem to customize the theme on a Posterous site. Given the way that news is updated here at school, that may be the least of my concerns. The question is really, how long do I hold out to see if they offer this in the next few weeks. Of course, this could all be out by the time the site launches in August anyways. It’s really amazing how quickly everything has progressed this year!
