Facebook’s new email system was designed with the purpose of creating a revolution in the world of email. Now, it is possible to integrate your email messages directly with Facebook messages, and text messages. With a Facebook account, you can now manage not just email, but also chats and SMS texts in a single platform. Mark Zuckerberg said that Facebook email was not made to kill the principle of email. And Facebook does not expect people to quit Gmail or Yahoo.
Facebook email is meant to be a handy tool for all Facebook users, allowing them to engage in smoother communication, create and make use of newsletters, and even redirect messages. Because of Facebook, you can see messages from your friends, and also from friends of friends.
Less important messages such as newsletters will be sent in a special box, and the company will control spam, forbidding users to send unsolicited messages. Users will also be able to send email to their friends that use other email services, and they will also have the possibility to attach video and audio files, but also photos.
However, unlike other email services, Facebook offers messages without a title, and an email can’t be sent to many persons. Mark Zuckerberg declared that Facebook plans to offer complex services to clients, combining instant mail with SMS and Facebook chat. As for people contesting the lack of title, Zuckerberg said that a mail with a name is too formal, and this is why this feature will not be introduced. At least for now. He even talked about the fact that email is only a component of the new Facebook concept, and that the system will have archives, prioritizing options and preferred contacts.
Soon, telephone numbers will disappear, and we will only use the name of the person we want to contact. The communication of people with people will be improved, and this is the purpose of Facebook after all.
As for the technical matters, the fact that Facebook mail is still not a threat for Gmail and Yahoo is the fact that it is not available for IMAP protocol, and unless this feature is created, the new email service would never have the impact it is expected to have.

No doubt to say that facebook is a dominating social media network but in case of email It could not get the familiarity over the hotmail or the Google plus or even yahoo email. As we all now that a lot of work have to do for email client servers but It has too many bugs. May be in future it get the users’ attraction.
I think Facebook email is a great alternative to other email systems if you are on facebook all the time why not integrate and email to it. It really just makes more sense and one less site you would have to visit.
