Insight: “faceboOk email” aka faceboOk’s “modern messaging system” Part – II

Read: Insight: “faceboOk email” aka faceboOk’s “modern messaging system” Part – I here..

I always used to think if I ever met Mark Zuckerberg i’ll tell him how faceboOk chat sucks and how he could improve messaging experience by adding few simple features like forwarding conversations, allowing addition of people to the threads of messages and allowing to save chat conversations.. But all this was Pre – faceeboOk’s Modern Messaging System time period. Now I use facebook chats as my primary mode of chatting all thanx to the “Modern Messaging System” and partly to “Rockmelt Browser” .. ‘ll write about Rockmelt later..

As faceboOk’s “modern messaging system” got it all.. Herez a list of all the modern features that faceboOk’s Modern Messaging System sports..

First of all the best ones..

Add people to the conversation:

You can now add people to the conversation at any point of time and also leave any conversation thread when it become UNinteresting 😛

Forward Messages & Conversations:

Yes! you can now forward messages to others on your friendlist. Goto Actions.. from dropdown select “Forward…”

Select Messages To Forward

Select Messages To Forward

Then Select Which messages from the conversation you want to forward…

Forwarding Messages

Forwarding Messages

Then enter whom do you want to forward to .. emailID or a faceboOk friend.. and click send.. but one constraint while forwarding to a faceboOk friend is that he/she must be on the new messaging system.. otherwise you get this ugly messgae..

Can not forward this message

I know at first I bragged about only me getting the new messaging system.. but its less fun if others don’t have it at all 😛

Saves Chat Conversations:

Saves Chat Conversation

This for me is a boon but some may even consider it a bane.. I am a keeper.. i love to store my convesations and read them later at some point of time.. even if i never read them.. it makes me feel good knowing that i have them stored and I can read them if i want to… this was the primary reason I always used gTalk for chatting…

Now some other good features that can be really handy..

Quick Reply Mode:

Quick Reply Mode: Press Enter To Send

Quick Reply Mode: Press Enter To Send

by enabling this option.. you can reply without any need to click on the “Reply” button instead you can send message by just pressing Enter just as in other chat clients like gtalk and yahoO messenger.

Send as text message:

Send As Text Message

Send As Text Message

In new messaging system you have an option to send the message as text message also to the receiver..

IM automatically goes to inbox if person offline:

Offline in chat

unlike before.. when you sent the IM and then it gives you an option to “Send as message instead”

Search Filter:

The system doesnt provide you with differen folders for emails, sent items, unread messages, and archived messages.. instead it provides a search filter to do all this stuff..

Archive messages:

You can archive your messages and conversation by selecting Archive button from the Action button dropdown options.

Your arcived messages will go into Archived messages filter..

Rightly place where it deserves to be 😛

Now one more interesting thing that I noted is that I tried sending a rar file as an attachment to the users who haven’t yet got the “Mobern Messaging System” but strangely I was able to send an attached rar file to them..
