Facebook tests out Medium-style blogging on Notes


Facebook is trialling a new way of creating blog-style updates for its users. In its own words, Facebook told digital news site The Next Web that it is testing an update to Notes to make it easier for people to create and read longer-form stories on Facebook. The new trial is being described as having the look and feel of blogging platform Medium.

Facebook Notes isn't widely used, or not anywhere near as much as regular photo, video and status updates. This new lick of paint that's being given to notes is similar to what LinkedIn did with its own long form blogging platform earlier this year, and may pave the way for more direct publishing straight to Facebook from its users, as opposed to linking elsewhere as is currently mainly the case.
