Now anybody can be a blogger using Facebook Notes


Facebook announced a host of changes to its Notes feature on Friday. Notes originally appeared on the site as a means for users to write extended entries (not unlike Engadget's own Public Access) though it never really caught on with the user base. However, the update transforms Notes into a tiny CMS within the Facebook ecosystem. Changes include the ability to add cover art, caption images, resize inline photos and format text.

You can see the difference between the two iterations in the image above. Instead of the standard wall of plaintext that longform Facebook posts have traditionally eschewed, the additional formatting makes the entries much easier to read and digest. And though the editing feature is exclusively web-based, the new Notes do appear on mobile as well.
