Facebook’s innovative service seeks to integrate text messages, emails, instant messages and Facebook messages all in one place online.
Facebook’s new service which was dubbed by critics a G-mail killer turns out to be an innovation of sorts. To be known as “modern messaging system” a term, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has given to the new service he has launched, which will combine text messages, emails and instant messages all under one umbrella.
Mark Zukerberg refused to call the new service a e-mail killer, and stressed on the same. According to Zuckerberg “It’s true that people will be able to have a @facebook.com email addresses, but it’s not email.”
To be rolled out to its 500 million users in the coming days, the new service known as Modern Messaging System, will allow all external e-mail, text messaging, instant messages and Facebook’s existing internal messaging service to be deposited into one feed known as a social inbox allowing users to reply in any way they want. Thus simplifying and allowing users to chose their mode of communication whether it is through text, instant messages, online chat or email. User can adjust their privacy settings to combat spam. Users who adjust their privacy settings to accept messages from only their friends only, will have all other emails sent from other sources to be deposited into another inbox.
