Facebook Mail Will Not Threaten Gmail

Facebook Mail

Facebook Mail

Facebook recently launched their own mail service so users can now have their own vanity email addresses @facebook.com There are some talks that this is a threat to Google’s Gmail. I doubt this is true, at least anywhere in the near future. Yes, it’s true that tweens and teens use text and Facebook to communicate. This, however, will not cause disruption in Gmail. Remember when Google Wave was supposed to be its own Gmail Killer? Why didn’t Google Wave succeed? Because there is nothing wrong with Gmail that really needs complete overhaul. What will likely happen is that we will just be introduced to more options of communicating of our choice and the recipient’s.

  • phone
  • text
  • email (Gmail, Yahoo, Facebook, AOL)
  • Chat (Gtalk, Skype, Chat, FaceTime)

The point is no one service will monopolize communication.
