Facebook Adds Blogs

We got a peek at some cool new Facebook features yesterday and one of them is live today. Each user now can add “notes” to their profile, including text, photos, tags, and comments. Users can also choose one external blog (presumably their own) to syndicate within their notes. And as with all things Facebook, the privacy settings are flexible–you can limit who can see or comment on the notes. As Adam points out, Facebook is dissociating itself from the word “blog” — which is becoming such a loaded term these days! From the FAQ: “Why aren’t notes called blogs?” Answer: “Because then you’d be a blogger. ;)” Call it what you want to call it; “blog” seems accurate to us.
