Facebook released an arguably failed email system over a year and a half ago. Code Name: Project Titan! What it ended up being is a unified messaging system for IM & Email like messaging, that can technically be used for email as well. From an email perspective, I don’t think it got mass adoption as the Gmail killer it was touted to be. So today they replaced the default email address to @facebook.com on all of their nearly 1 billion member profiles today. The tech media is screaming about it, but will the regular folks? Or will they react to it like “First Day On The Internet Kid Here?” Time will tell. But I think it sucks.
Guess what I will be doing with my recently retired OG Droid 🙂
