Facebook Email Service
I have published the news of Facebook Email Service among my friends here on my village and they have asked some questions about it to me. Here I’m sharing those questions and the answers that I gave them. These answers might not be exactly true, but are the best of my knowledge.
When is Facebook Email Service going to Launch?
News reports says that the Facebook Email service will be launching on coming Monday, 22-11-2010.
Will Facebook’s E-Mail Service kill Gmail, Yahoo Mail, AOL Mail and Hotmail?
No – As per knowledge that I gained after analyzing the recent news about it, Facebook’s email service won’t kill popular email services like Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Hotmail, AOL Mail etc.
Why Facebook Email Service won’t kill popular Email Services?
I’m using Gmail since long time and it’s my favorite personal email service. This is because Gmail is fast, secure and more over I’m using Google’s many services. So it’s very comfortable for me to use a single account with all Google’s services and with Gmail. At the same time, I’m using Yahoo Mail and is my favorite for contacting my clients and Hotmail for my business purposes. Also I use Yahoo’s many services with a single yahoo mail account. Yahoo mail is advanced and is best for chatting on-line. And I use Hotmail for my business purpose because I feel Hotmail is the most secure mail service for business purpose. So I use all these three popular service Gmail, Yahoo and Hotmail every day for different purpose. I never use AOL, but I heard it’s having a lot of fans and some of my friends recommend me to use it and they claim it’s the best service for them. Like me, most of my friends use emails on different service for different purpose. So even though Facebook email became popular, no-one is going to leave old email services… Who is going to leave his old powerful favorite Bullet even-after he got a brand new Bike as gift? All these email services are free and so no one is going to leave anything.
Do I use Facebook Email Service?
Yes, definitely I will use Facebook Email Service. Do you say No to your father when he is offering a new bike to you as a birth day gift even-though you are having a car?
