    This quote sums it up for me:

    Facebook isn't really the place I'll look for longform pieces - it exists more as a space for photos, life updates, and articles.

    I don't see the appeal of this feature for users, as Facebook is a place to get updates and life events from people you know. That being said, I am interested to see how this develops and what features we will see, as I do enjoy serious, longform posts. Instead of having your note only be viewable by 200 or so of your friends, it would be great if this Notes feature could be open to be viewable by the public. But I still don't see the appeal. Services like Medium are a great resource to blog quickly and simply and can be easily discovered by other people.

      Aren't articles often longform pieces? I'd take this quote with a grain of salt. Facebook has clearly not been about inline, longform pieces, I agree with that... Because it hasn't had a good, intentionally designed feature for it. Now it will have. I'll wait and see. I think it would be a move for the better for Facebook. Can't wait to see more content and less re-shared BS from 9gag and whatnot.
