Facebook Sharing & Engagement Is Not Free Anymore

http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/03/03/disruptions-when-sharing-on-facebook-comes-at-a-cost/

Nick Bilton wrote an article on NYT Bits how Facebook engagement dropped, and works only when you pay. It’s a shame. I also have same kind of result. And I also did test.

So Facebook sharing is not as free as it were year ago.

Without Skitch, which is for making annotation and drawing, all apps are for taking notes. But why 7 different apps?
