Users of the photo rich blogging and social media site Tumblr aren't happy. Yahoo has plans to buy the site for $1.1 billion dollars in an all cash deal which extends the brand of Yahoo into this social media space. The deal would be one of the largest acquisitions of a social networking company in years.
