To our dismay, Twitter has restricted our users’ ability to ‘Find Twitter Friends’ on Tumblr. Given our history of embracing their platform, this is especially upsetting.

Looks like our inflammatory mix of McKayla Maroney coverage and Paul Ryan insta-analysis has the overlords in Yemen locking down the hatches. Can, uh, anyone in Yemen confirm this? Weird.

Cats, Mr. Zimmerman said, are a surefire bet, as are stories about zombies and videos of flash mobs or public marriage proposals.
There it is, Tumblr.

WHAT’S UP TUMBLR GOOD MORNING

We’re about to give a little presentation to the NewsBeast interns, part of which will be demonstrating the awesomeness of Tumblr. If you’d like to say hello, or offer one word of advice for this class of interns, send us a message and we’ll show it in the meeting! Bonus points for gifs.

nwkbookclub:

Hey guys! We’re trying something new today! At 1 pm ET we’re going to our first Tumblr book club chat. 
Hopefully all of you have gotten to or close to page 88 in our first book, ‘Gold’ by Chirs Cleave. What do you think so far? Tell us! We’ll start posting your thoughts, questions, etc. at 1 pm ET today. See you, on our Tumblr page, then! 

A reminder for those of you reading along (I have a little crush on Zoe I think). See you at 1!

ADDICTED TO INTERNETS, Y’ALL! 
(But srsly, think this whole thing is making us a little nutso? That’s our cover this week: How ‘connection addiction’ is re-wiring our brains.)
An excerpt:

Questions about the Internet’s deleterious effects on the mind are at least as old as hyperlinks. But even among Web skeptics, the idea that a new technology might influence how we think and feel—let alone contribute to a great American crack-up—was considered silly and naive, like waving a cane at electric light or blaming the television for kids these days. Instead, the Internet was seen as just another medium, a delivery system, not a diabolical machine. It made people happier and more productive. And where was the proof otherwise?
Now, however, the proof is starting to pile up. The first good, peer-reviewed research is emerging, and the picture is much gloomier than the trumpet blasts of Web utopians have allowed. The current incarnation of the Internet—portable, social, accelerated, and all-pervasive—may be making us not just dumber or lonelier but more depressed and anxious, prone to obsessive-compulsive and attention-deficit disorders, even outright psychotic. Our digitized minds can scan like those of drug addicts, and normal people are breaking down in sad and seemingly new ways.

A dive bar is a social platform. Tumblr is for publicly sharing awful photographs of railroad tracks and snowy branches no one wants to see, not even your mother.

Hello World
PICTURE DEPT is a new venue for photography presented by the award-winning Newsweek & The Daily Beast photo teams. As photo sharing has exploded online with services like Instagram, Tumblr, Facebook, and others, there has never been more content available for viewing. But as more great, new photography venues are created, it is increasingly hard to keep up with the seemingly endless stream—and to find the very best of what’s out there. PICTURE DEPT is designed to both filter and condense this information into a single resource. The site includes curated photo features and recommendations of the best of what is happening in photography—not just from Newsweek & The Daily Beast but also from Tumblr, around the Web, and the world beyond the computer screen.
About the name:
When we decided to create a photo Tumblr, we turned to the amazing Newsweek archives for inspiration, and there we discovered a battered metal box that contained hundreds of faded yellow 4 x 6 note cards. On each card was the date of an issue of the magazine and the complete listing of its photo spreads. And they were all titled “PICTURE DEPT”, the original moniker of the photo department. The cards ranged in date from the 1930’s - 1970’s and reminded us of the amazing legacy of the magazine. So we decided to resurrect Picture Dept for the 21st century. 
Follow us!

Guys! Our friends in Newsweek & The Daily Beast’s photo department have been hard at work brainstorming, and then designing, the latest addition to the nwktumblr family: Picture Dept! 
It just launched today. We’re super excited for them.
If you like photography, photojournalism, taking pictures, or just find yourself curious what it’s like to work in the photo department at an international media company, follow their tumblr. It’s beautiful.
As for what’s in store, they plan on posting original photography, photos that run in the magazine and on the site, photos that don’t make it, and the best photos they find around the web and on tumblr. 
Congrats and welcome to tumblr!
