Facebook Messages

Just in case you are the last guy on earth that didn’t heard about it: Facebook wants to recreate the email!
No more, no less… but the fact is: they have some pretty good points:

  • Your contact list is already set up (FB friend list)
  • All messages, SMS, chats, … will be available & backup in one place
  • Pretty easy to find your email address: it would be your.username@facebook.com
  • Manage your contacts importance: Grand-ma or beloved-one emails deserves better than being received between bank receipt & Amazon newsletter
  • Bye bye ¬†SPAM: Emails from people not in your friend list neither in your email contacts will go straight in the SPAM folder (add your non-facebook contact by adding their email+name in your list)
  • While on-the-go, get & reply to FB messages/email to your friends via SMS (free of charge, except carrier text-messages fees)
  • View docs attachements (doc, ppt, xls) in one-clic inside Office Online (reminder: Microsoft owns 20% of FB stocks)
  • Get one of the best server infrastructure with close to 100% up-time

But the real big issue they will have to seduce users will definitely be privacy issues, something pretty touchy when it comes to emails. Definitely not what facebook.com is known as the best place on the web…
