All right…here we go. Another 'upgrade.'
Facebook users will soon be getting their own e-mail accounts on the social networking site, and CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently opened up about the development, and what exactly the changes will entail!
He explains that Facebook will have three new features, described as "the way the future should work."
These include 'seamless messaging,' which lets users chat with people through SMS, e-mail, or IM; conversation history, which will let a user "see everything you've discussed with friends as a single conversation;" and a social inbox for "filtering exactly the messages you want to see."
"This is not an email killer. This is a messaging system that includes email as one part of it. You decide how you want to talk to your friends: via SMS, chat, email or Messages. They will receive your message through whatever medium or device is convenient for them, and you can both have a conversation in real time. We don't think modern messaging system will be email."
This is pretty intense. And we don't really get it.
But we imagine that once it's employed - which will be via invite-only throughout the upcoming months - it will be a little more comprehensible!
Oh, how we long for the days when Facebook was just for college students and its newest option was to 'poke' other users.
What do U think?? Do U want a Facebook e-mail address??
