De-siloizing Facebook in 2016
If Facebook is going to be the #1 blogging platform, wouldn’t it be nice if they added a few features to the main product. People aren’t using Notes so much. They seem so formal.
- Basic styling.
- An RSS feed.
- For extra credit — Markdown support.
Then they could not be holding back the blogosphere because people could actually use Facebook as a blogging platform. As it stands right now the stuff people post to Facebook is fairly useless outside of Facebook.
If they’d pay a bit more attention to the world outside their boundaries, they might be better-received when they try to extend their reach into new markets. I think it’s felt all around as the attitude of Facebook, it’s a very silo place.
