Looks like Facebook is trying to get into the heady world on Internet publishing with its revamp of Facebook Notes. The app’s design now looks a lot like blogging mediums such as Medium, with wider dimensions and the ability to include a cover image and a clear headline.
Facebook told The Verge that it was still testing the update in an effort to “make it easier for people to create and read longer-form stories on Facebook.”
While Notes has been around for a long time, the feature does not stand out in the site’s general layout. With the change, Facebook perhaps hopes more people will write notes and create a blogging social network similar to platforms such as Livejournal. Facebook's already signed deals with news publishers, it would make sense it would try and attract people who ordinarily would blog.
