Washington: Yahoo-owned blogging network, Tumblr, reportedly experienced extended outage due to what the company called `intermittent errors`.

Yahoo acknowledged that Tumblr experienced errors affecting the entire blogging network for more than three hours.
According to Cnet, the company first alerted its users on Twitter and the ` intermittent errors` took several hours to fix.

A Tumblr spokesperson said that there was a compatibility issue during an upgrade, adding that the issue had been resolved.
Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer recently acquired the blogging network, host to 166 million blog sites, for an eye-popping 1.1 billion dollars as part of her brand rebuilding.
