Facebook introduces e mail service : Facebook vs gmail

Hotmail, Yahoo Mail, and Gmail beware: Facebook is coming for you. Apart from being a really cool title for a secret plan by Facebook, it could also be a signal at a major change in the email provider scene, provided everything goes according to plan at Facebook HQ.

    A Snapshot how the Facebook email account invitation page looks like

Facebook Vs Gmail

Emails were sent out to users with id’s and within those emails were invites to a special event on Monday.There are strong hints that Facebook is building a full-fledged webmail client. Project Titan has huge potential since Facebook is a very popular in the online space, rest assured this wont be the Facebook messaging UI with a email tacked on, but will be a proper well crafted webmail service.

Unique Features from Facebook mail :
  • Unlimited space
  • No spam mails
  • Instant messaging
  • Online chatting
  • Social Networking with Message feeds

Facebook : Gmail Killer

Imagine, Cain said, a Facebook system that could prioritize mail from any external source based on the closeness of your relationship to the sender, or that allows you to easily flip a one-to-one e-mail exchange into a conversation with a group of friends.
Facebook already offers a way to communicate with other Facebook members in an email-like system, but it is closed to non-Facebook users. The Mercury News cites data saying that 90 percent of U.S. adults check e-mail regularly, but only 59 percent use social networking tools such as Facebook and Twitter.
This has led to an unprecedented war of words between the two internet giants, and Facebook's announcement that it is trying to take down Gmail will surely just add to the rivalry. The good news is that, when businesses fight, it's usually the consumer who wins.
