Speaking at an event in San Francisco, ahead of this year’s Web 2.0 Summit, Facebook’s Mark Zuckeberg showcased the ‘next generation messaging system’, which will allow users to have an @facebook.com email address.
He said: “Email is too slow… email is too formal. There is too much friction, like the filling in the subject line…. when people send an email.”
Zuckerberg stressed that the new system, which will combine Facebook’s instant messaging system, SMS, Facebook messages and email in one place, would allow people to reply seamlessly across multiple devices to different types of messages
