I signed on to my Facebook profile [yup! I have one, like millions of other college students in the US] earlier today to see a new feature – Notes. Essentially, Notes are nothing but blogs on Facebook where you can share your thoughts with your ‘campus friends’ although they refuse to call them blogs “because then you’d be a blogger.” That weirdness aside, they allow you to import your existing blogs and syndicate the contents on your Facebook profile.
Right now, I may not syndicate this blog which is anonymous at least on the face of it and the link to my other “academic” blog is posted on my profile. I don’t use Facebook as much as some of my other friends do so any added features aren’t really helpful to me. But I am glad that Facebook is incorporating such interactive features. I prefer Facebook any day to the largely fake world of MySpace.
