  3. This is a good move by Facebook, and a quite bold one to be exact. They’re trying to get all bloggers to implement facebook as a greater part of everyone’s blogs. I’m not sure how Facebook is planning to make this grow, but if it works out then Facebook is going bigger than it is at the moment because the wordpress market is quite huge. Nice article, I’ll definitely check this out. :)
