Where Did The Facebook Notes Settings Go
I used to configure Facebook to automatically pull from my blog and generate Notes, but I don’t want anymore.
Unfortunately, the settings for this system seem to have changed, and I can’t find the Notes’ settings anymore. Any idea where it is?
Note: I was not using twitterfeed or any third-party application, but the Facebook-provided feature described here.

After 2020.10.31, “Facebook Notes” is being deprecated quietly/silently with nearly zero warning.Their entire/only warning message, only shows at facebook.com//notes_drafts in 1-2 lines, is easy for anybody to miss.
Their reason we have to guessvestigate is:
“I havent discerned exactly why Facebook is discontinuing the featureother than its simply a little-used remnant of a failed strategy.”
“Facebook promised media outlets that publishing through somethinglike Facebook Notes would result in new monetization opportunities andmillions of new subscriptions. I didnt see how that could happen anddeep down, the publishers knew they were being scammed, too.”
