Facebook Thinks You Should Blog

Is Facebook on its way to compete with big blogging platforms?

Do you remember notes on Facebook?

Do you remember the way you used to rant so long in your posts?

Facebook's Notes feature was an early expansion to the social networking forum. However throughout the years it's gotten little consideration from developers.

Therefore, for most of the clients it slipped into oblivion. As of late, it appears that Facebook management has brushed the dust off the blogging component.

Finally, Facebook is deciding to give this feature a much required makeover. The new outline is right now being put through its paces by various Facebook clients.

The new outline was spotted by blogging pioneer Dave Winer. The new look has all the earmarks of being affected by one of the mainstream publishing platforms accessible today.

As per Winer, it looks much similar to Medium. Medium was launched by Twitter co-founders Evan Williams and Biz Stone three years prior.

The Notes looks set to arrive with a clean, uncluttered outline. This design will make publishing and reading very simple.

A Facebook spokesperson said; "We’re testing an update to Notes to make it easier for people to create and read longer-form stories on Facebook."

The new-look of Notes incorporates an extensive picture over the top of a post. It also includes a space for a headline before the main body of text.

You can effectively resize pictures, tag other Facebook friends, and include links and hashtags too.

Blogs are attracting an increasing number of brands. High-profile users are eager to communicate their messages, thoughts and opinions through blog post.

Now it seems that Facebook too wants to make its place. Facebook trusts that with more alluring interface for Notes, brands and consistent users, it can get blogging inside Facebook again.

Will Notes work or not remains to be seen, but what is clear is Facebook’s desire to dominate the Internet.
