Do you remember Facebook Notes?

Believe it or not, you can still write notes on Facebook. A relic of the past, Facebook notes have pretty much fallen out of favor with the social networking crowd. This might be the first time you've even thought about them in years. Go try to compose a new note on Facebook. Trust me, it'll take you longer than it should to figure out how to do it.

But it doesn't look like Facebook has given up on people using the site for longer-form compositions. Notes appears to be getting a revamp.

Check out this post.

Compare that to what Notes has looked like for years:

The new Notes looks a lot better – and a lot more modern. Medium, anyone?

The new looks for Notes is not available to all. What do you think? Given its updated look and feel, will people want to blog on Facebook? Status updates can already run up to 60,000 characters – so there's already some long-form stuff being published on Facebook every day.

But for users that already have a large friend or follower list, Facebook updating a very old feature could provide a new way to get their long-form content shared.
