Facebook Quits Email Service

/// Facebook Quits Email Service

If you use Facebook, you probably received an email this week letting you know that any mail you get at your @facebook.com address will be forwarded to your default email address. That’s because Facebook is getting out of the email game. If you forgot they were even in it, you’re not alone, as PandoDaily explained this week.

As you might have noticed, when a new service does particularly well, Facebook often first attempts to buy it out. If that doesn’t work, the social media giant simply creates its own version of the service. Despite Facebook’s best efforts, its email service just never took off. Now that it bought out WhatsApp, the site will focus all its efforts on the messaging side of things.

What do you think of Facebook’s decision to leave the email market? Did you ever even use this service? You can read more about this subject at PandoDaily.
