Everything You Need to Know About the New Facebook Messages
Mark Zuckerberg has announced at Facebook’s press event today a new messaging system which sums up real-time chat, email, SMS, other chat clients. So get ready for your @facebook.com address.
Facebook Messages system is not a regular mail, there are no subject lines, no CC or BCC. You can send a message just by hitting the Enter key. It’s going to feel like chat. A lot of times, it’s going to be chat (ops!). It allows messages with more seamless, informal, immediate, personal, simple, minimal and short way, CEO & Founder Mark Zuckerburg said.
How to get it? You don’t need to create a new account, Facebook mail will use your current public vanity URL. In case you have a username as mine http://facebook.com/username, you will be able to register with the same username as firstname.lastname@example.org. The revamped Facebook Messages will be rolled out to the social network’s 500+ million users over the next few months.
In case you don’t like waiting, you can request an invite by navigating your browser to this link and simply hit Request and you will receive an invite soon. You can also try following @FBeMail on Twitter to score some invites.
And yes, as Zuckerberg quoted, This is a messaging experience that includes email as one part of it.
Another great thing I forgot to mention in my post that it almost comes to all the mobile platforms including the iPhone users. We expect an update soon for Facebook for iPhone app with the all new unified messaging system. But will you really give up your Hotmail, Gmail or Yahoo? Let us know!
We’ll also post a quick walkthrough after getting the invitation. Stay tuned.
