This is a very smart move for Facebook. Although I’ve subscribed to Facebook since it was just a college network, I quickly lost interest once they started allowing all kinds of stupid games and useless applications. But now you can follow blogs from Facebook, which is a very useful and productive tool.
Blog reading on Facebook is becoming a popular activity. One of the top applications for following blogs through the social networking site is NetworkedBlogs, an app which launched last year bringing the blog community to the Facebook platform. Half MyBlogLog, half RSS reader, the application lets users add their blog, favorite the blogs of their friends, and click through the latest headlines. Most importantly, the app brings blogs to the more mainstream Facebook audience.
