Taylor Swift has sought advice from her fans about how to use Tumblr.

The 24-year-old singer - who is a regular on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram - vowed to lock herself away until she worked out exactly how to use the social media platform because she is keen to interact with her supporters on the site, so she asked them to help her out.

She wrote: ''Taylor here. I'm locking myself in my room and not leaving until I figure out how to use my Tumblr. Well, I might leave for a second to get a snack or something but that is IT. I am FOCUSED. I have lots of questions, help me. (sic)''

Fortunately for the 'I Knew You Were Trouble' hitmaker, one lucky fan was keen to help and asked Taylor to let her know if she had any questions about the social media platform, and the blonde beauty certainly didn't hold back.

Taylor wrote: ''Is re blogging what I'm doing right now and is this the best way to write back to someone?

''Also how do I get GIFs?

''How do you post them?

''How do I have one of those convos you always see screen shots of on Instagram?

''Is that by re blogging or is there some sort of conversation board on here? Overwhelmed. Taking deep breaths. (sic)''

If Taylor's Twitter and Instagram is anything to go by then her Tumblr followers will be inundated with pictures of her cats, Meredith and Olivia, named after 'Grey's Anatomy' character Meredith Grey and 'Law & Order: SVU' alter-ego Olivia Benson.
