Social networking site Tumblr has just been purchased by Automattic Inc. for a shockingly low price.
As result, two of the biggest free blogging services on the internet will join forces. Unfortunately, terms of the deal haven't been disclosed yet, so we have no idea how much Automattic will pay for the acquisition, nor when the deal will close.

The Verizon-imposed porn ban will stay in place at Tumblr after the deal is completed, the Journal wrote. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions. "Our teams are hard at work right now to make this transition smooth for everyone at Tumblr, and while we have many details to iron out, one thing we're absolutely committed to is to preserve the passion and sense of community that so many people around the world -and all over the web- have come to associate with Tumblr", he said.
