Discussion
Following Facebook's Instant Articles, Zuck and team continue to encourage people to distribute and publish content on their platform. I'm excited to give this a try, primarily to see what type of distribution it delivers. P.S. Not surprised @bosefina is working on this, considering how much she loves to write (check out her posts on Medium).

@rrhoover Thanks for the continued support! It's truly magical to be working on something that resonates with my passions :) We hope people use notes to share their everyday moments, memories, stories, and points of view. For the times when you have something more to say, notes is here for you.
@rrhoover @bosefina Tried it just now for a page I manage and I love the rich text editor and such. Can't seem to boost it as a paid ad or am I missing something?
As a writer I am incredibly excited for this! Questions for @clowbrow @hellendag and @bosefina 1. Any plans for video integration? 2. Any plans for analytics in the future? Here is my first note: https://www.facebook.com/notes/a... Great work, loving it!
Curious to see if and how this product update drives behavior. Medium induces social sharing on multiple platforms, LinkedIn induces engagement within its own platform, and Facebook will...? Can't wait to see how Facebook Notes unfolds!
@melissajoykong I'm also interested to see how this changes the purpose of people visiting Facebook. Currently I would never go there to learn or read something interesting as Medium is the by far superior for that.
Is Facebook down right now?
Is this what Teehan+Lax have been working on at Facebook post Medium?
