Tumblr has been busy rolling out updates as of late, with the newest one being an "Explore" feature to help users discover content.

The new feature is visible at the top of the dashboard under a new compass icon. According to Tumblr, the feature will help users find a variety of content, including recommended posts that are based on previously liked items, as well as trending content, staff-picked content and other top posts.

It is important to note that the Explore feature is just the latest in a string of updates for the social blogging platform, which include new calls-to-action on certain posts and a new ad service called Tumblr Sponsored Apps.
