Facebook to Remove Email System
Implemented in November, 2010, the Facebook email system has been available to all users of the social networking site for quite some time. It was initially intended to provide a singular mailbox for Facebook related communications, traditional emails, and SMS messages. The email system, which provided users with a @facebook.com email, has had a poor track record for adoption since its initial implementation however. Due to this, along with the restructuring of communications that Facebook is taking with its recent purchase of WhatsApp, the company has informed users that their Facebook email address will no longer be available starting early March of this year.
