Rumor has it that Facebook will launch its own mail service this Monday. With that mail service, Mark Zuckerberg and cs want to compete with the famous Google. I am a very frequent user of Gmail myself, so I think they should at least offer the same features as Gmail does: the ability to import non-Facebook accounts, a huge inbox and the ability to create documents and sharing them with your contacts. And perhaps the most important feature: the mail service should be very well protected!
Facebook is competing with at least 180 million Gmail users worldwide, but the world has 557 million Facebook users. The new mail service from Facebook would come from disagreement between Google and Facebook. Via Gmail, you could import contacts into Facebook and Google thought that was not a good idea and blocked the ability.
We will see Monday! I’m very curious.
