The ever appealing hosted blogging platform Posterous now supports posting to Facebook. You might remember that Steve Rubel moved to the platform recently. The addition of Facebook support surely is another reason for switching to Posterous. On the other hand, you can sync just about any blog with a RSS feed to Facebook, so it might not be the big Hosted Blog Killer feature after all.

Notable blogger Steve Rubel is quitting blogging, and is all about the lifestreaming now. He’s apparently blown away by Posterous, but looking at his new site it is all very much a blog to me. Then again the platform he has chosen is a lot less tightened than his old blog (being Micro Persuasion, still online), so I while I think he’s just playing with words here, this probably sums it up better than anything else:
A blog is more structured. It’s posts. This is freestyle.
