Study idea:

Do Tumblr likes and reblogs reflect mood and self-image?

If you feel strong and confident, are you more or less likely to like or reblog an image of a strong, confident woman?

If you feel vulnerable and isolated, are you more or less likely to like or reblog an image of a vulnerable, isolated woman?

Is Tumblr aspirational, or is it a mirror?

All this would take is long term (maybe a few months) study of a decent sample size of women of various ages who keep Tumblrs of images of women. Ask subjects to answer a questionnaire about mood, then go through one set of curated Tumblr images (then one set from their natural dashboard) and like or reblog as they please. Identify discrete recurring visual themes, then evaluate if tastes vary by mood.

Sounds fun!
