Tumblr introduces hashtags and Facebook integration, still locks up your data...

Much like Twitter’s hashtags, “Tag Channels” allow users to tag their content so it turns up in a new real-time search.

Separately, Tumblr is also releasing Facebook integration: photo posts, audio posts, videos and quotes are all properly styled to post properly to Facebook pages.

The changes come after a successful July for the company: 255 million pageviews were served that month.

Tumblr and Posterous are really blurring the line between blogs and social networks. Neither will let you archive your own content, though -- for that you're better off with Blogger or WordPress...
