Facebook email is out. Mark Zuckerberg introduced Facebook Messages which will allow you to email, chat, SMS and Facebook messages all in one window. All 500 million Facebook users are free to use this service. They just need to request for the invitation.
Techcrunch in 2007 reported that Gmail, Yahoo mail and Live Hotmail have approximately 51m, 250m and 228m users. Though the statistics would have changed but Facebook alone has 500m users worldwide. If only 70 % among them start using Facebook, it will over take the number of email users. The number will be more than all Gmail,Yahoo and Live Hotmail.
How to activate Facebook Messages?
- Go to the Facebook Message page.
- Request for an invitation.
- Any friend can invite you if she is using this new service.
I have requested for Facebook Messages invitation, but I have not received any updates. So what are your views on Facebook Messages? Do you think it will be a Gmail killer? Share your views with me through the comments.
