Remember Facebook Notes? Probably not, since all the Facebook hype in recent months (even years), has been about Timeline, privacy, and any slight redesign that the social network does—the least of which has centered around Notes. Though, this may change soon. Facebook took on the development team from the blogging service Storylane back in March, which may hint at a Note redesign—or something new entirely—that will compete with micro-blogging services such as Tumblr. This make sense: according to Forbes, Facebook reportedly made its interest in micro-blogging known when it held talks with Tumblr before Yahoo bought them out.
With advertising money waiting to be made, this seems like a no-brainer in the evolution of the social network.
