Posted by at 10:22 am on November 15, 2010

Facebook today is holding its special messaging event, where it’s launching a new e-mail service.

The Specs So Far

Convergence System: seamless messaging. Handles e-mail, but also FB messages and IM. You’ll have an @facebook.com address, but it’s not the only way or even the primary way.

Conversation History: Threading is archaic. Adds a lot of weight. You have a conversation with someone and every communication format goes into this timeline. Always get something immediately no matter where it comes from.

Social Inbox: Spam filters are good, but they don’t catch the difference between legitimate and fluff e-mail when it comes from the same person. One box of important mail, another for legit but likely unimportant mail.

Time Frame: ¬†Facebook’s normal willbe rolled out slowly over the next few months.
