Facebook is not launching e-mail but a service that will aggregate e-mails with other means of communications. In its quest on becoming the worlds primary means of worldwide communications have recently introduced Social Inbox. Where Chat, E-Mail, Texting and private message is one. With different ways of communcating, sms, chat, email, FB pm. It is just about communications, just about sending a message; e-mail and chat together, all in real time.
Next generation will have access to ALL communications at the same place. Txt, email, chat, private message. All at the same place. Finally, Facebook’s solution to spam = whitelists based on your Facebook friends and friends of friends network.
This is huge for communications.
Facebook’s branding will slow down the adoption rate of its e-mail service because of its non-professional perception from the public. Would you apply for a job with your @facebook.com email or @gmail?
I read on Twitter somebody that said they will only have Facebook access to their banking statement only when hell will freeze over (I assume he meant that he gets his statements in his email inbox).
If you are using gmail… would you trust Facebook over Google with your sensative financial information?
