Facebook 'About To Launch Gmail Killer'

Post by GD on Mon 15 Nov 2010, 7:02 pm

Facebook is about to launch a new email service in a move that could directly challenge the likes of Hotmail and Google's Gmail, according to reports

The social networking site is expected to unveil the new venture dubbed the "Gmail killer" at an event in San Francisco at about 6pm UK time.
Technology blog Techcrunch suggests Facebook, which has more than 500 million users, will offer a "fully-fledged" webmail service.
Email addresses would be expected to have the @facebook.com suffix.
The company has been involved in a number of disputes with Google such as when it was banned from allowing Facebook users to import their Gmail contacts.
But one source "with knowledge of Facebook's plans" has told the New York Times that the new service would not just be about email.
The source was quoted as saying: "They're not trying to do a standalone rival to Gmail.
"They are building an integrated experience in everything they do." (from sky)

......THE BOSS......

"Always be yourself because the people who mind don't matter, and the people who matter don't mind"
