Facebook will release their own e-mail service competing with Gmail. The service may go live already tomorrow (Monday, November 15). The Facebook email service will most likely have better spam protection because Facebook knows a lot of your your friends and friends of your friends. This means you will easily identify spam emails because they will be sent from outside of your circle of connections. This will be one of the strongest competitive advantages of FB mail.
We shouldn’t forget that Facebook knows more than 500 million people in the world by their first name. That is why the potential for the new service is huge.
So get ready to register a new e-mail. Early birds will get the best, as always. For now, keep an eye out for announcements on your Facebook profile. You will be able to register your new e-mail address as firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
