The New Facebook Email

As you might already know, Facebook rolled out their new messaging feature – a personalized email address (AllFacebook.com reported this on November 15th, 2010). I just got the notification that my Facebook email address had been set up this morning (here in Singapore) so I’ll just explain a bit on what I know about it.

It’s a location-based (but why?) upgrade I guess, similar to Facebook Places. It’s cool now that we all have a Facebook email address. For mine, they configured the email username to be the same as my profile URL (facebook.com/azharkamar) so it’s azharkamar@facebook.com.

So where do emails end up when you send it to azharkamar@facebook.com? The Facebook Messages Inbox of course.

Just for fun, I’ll show you the screenshots on how I was notified.

Your Facebook Email Inbox

I sent a test email from azhar@azharkamar.com to azharkamar@facebook.com and here’s how it looks like:
fb-email1

And then I replied from Facebook and this is how it ends up in my Google Apps email inbox:
