We have already informed you about new Facebook Email system which was announced months back and finally today I have received my new Facebook Email invitation.
Here I’m going to walk through on how I activated new facebook Email system and how you can get started once you get the invitation from Facebook team.
How to get started with Facebook Email?
People are getting invitation randomly and if you are lucky enough, you will see a box like this when you login to your Facebook account next time.
Once you click on See What’s new, you will be taken to upgrade now page. Click on upgrade now and you can set your Email address .
Your Email address will be your username. So if you have not selected a username for your facebook profile, it’s time to set one ASAP. <>
I have tested my Email address by sending Email from Gmail account and it was there within seconds. And same ways, reply was received within seconds.
If Email is coming from your known contacts, it will land into inbox else email will land into others. I’m not sure how good spam control of Facebook Email messaging system would be, but they really need a working spam filter.
Inside inbox, I missed an option to select all so that I can take single action on multiple Emails. I hope this will be added some time in future.
Registration to other forums:
I have also tried registering to other forums and websites using Facebook Email address and it also worked. So now you have anotherwhich you can use to register yourself into various forums.
Compose Facebook Email:
You can also compose Email from Facebook Email box and you have an option to attach file and take picture or video. This is another handy feature and might be very useful for many.
Overall I liked the new feature on my Facebook account. Though I will wait for more usage of it, since I don’t find it as Email replacement or something I can’t live without. Probably in future, Facebook will add some more feature to it to make it stand out of the box.
