Facebook Giving Away Email Addresses

Facebook has announced that it will give all users a email address that will match their facebook username but did not say when it will be rolled out.

Andrew Bosworth, director of engineering at Facebook, said that the move would allow users to refer back to their message history and that the address would encapsulate the new paradigm unveiled during the Facebook event today.

Earlier during the event, Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO and founder of Facebook announced that chat and messages would integrate to deliver seamless messaging, conversation history and scocial inbox.

He also mentioned that around 350 million people are using messages on Facebook, roughly about two thirds of the active users on the social networking website.

Every day, more than four billion content pieces are sent every day, including messages and IMs, that's roughly 1.5 trillion units per annum.
