“Facebook Messaging” – The Next Generation Email System and Email Killer

This is not an “Email Killer” – Mark Zuckerberg emphasized at the Massive Messaging Facebook event, which is happening now. Today, Facebook announced the next evolution of messaging system.




Imagine you have different circle of friends – one prefer text messaging, another always chat, and others emails. Between mobile devices and the Internet we can be more connected today than ever before, but there is still a feeling that the technology can also act as a barrier between us.

Today, Facebook announced the next evolution of messaging system – Three main features include: Seamless Messaging, Conversation History, Social Inbox



Facebook is also providing @facebook.com email address to every person on Facebook. In this new system, there will be no separate subjects for each message. Instead, you’ll have a single thread with each person.

With new messages, your Inbox will only contain messages from your friends and their friends. All other messages will go into an Other folder where you can look at them separately. Wow!



Facebook is going to launch this revolutionary messaging and email addresses gradually in next few months. Once you receive an invitation, you’ll be able to get started and also invite your friends to join you.

So, do you think this is a “Gmail Killer”?
