Faceboook announced the new version of Facebook Messages, which attempts to integrate four main things: SMS, IM, email, and Facebook messages. Yes, there will be email addresses ending with @facebook.com if you want one. And, as Mark Zuckerberg himself said, no this is not an email killer. “This is a messaging experience that includes email as one part of it. This is the way that the future should work,” he said during today’s announcement. (Ahem, like I said)
Everyone should be getting this within the coming months. And, when you think about it, it’s about time someone tried to merge the various ways in which we text-based communicate.
