a blog is an online journal. The word "blog" is even shorthand for "weblog." The main point of blogs is to WRITE about stuff. You can have links to friends and sometimes they make comments, but the whole point of a blog is to write thoughts down -- whether it be viewpoints or what you did that day, etc.
Facebook is about keeping in touch with friends. You post pictures, write comments, play games with apps... it's a social networking tool. Facebook is built to be more interactive than a blog. You visit Facebook for the people while you visit blogs for what people have written. Plus, you can put a blog into your Facebook, but you can't put your Facebook profile into a blog.
