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..

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

Last week I got early acceess to faceboOk’s new “Modern Messaging System” which some people also call “The faceboOk email” or “The gmail Killer” and am already a big fan of it..
In this and the next post I’ll share with you my “faceboOk’s modern messaging” experience with detailed ScreenShots..

FaceboOk CoFounder and CEO – Mark Zuckerberg also calls it “Next Generation Messaging”

The three main elements of the “modern messaging system” are:

Messages & Other

Messages & Other

  1. Seamless Messaging
    Communication across all the different ways people like to message, including but not limited to email.
  2. Conversation History
    A record of all your contacts with people all in one place.
  3. Social Inbox
    It prioritizes messages from your contacts.
    Social Inbox will separate messages into three folders:

    • Messages
    • Other
    • Junk

    Your social graph will determine what gets sorted in the messages folder and what in other.
    Links for folders “Messages” and “Other” are placed in the left side bar where as to go to spam folder goto “Other” folder and click the Junk link at the bottom (rightly placed at the postion where it deserves to be :P)

    Junk Folder

    Junk Folder

Now to Compose a new message click on the “New Message” button on the top right corner of your Message page.

New Message

A pop up window as in the screenshot below will appear where you can Enter Name of the friend you want to message or Email ID you want to mailto or both.

eMail Message and text

eMail Message and text

One important thing to notice in this is that there is no field for entering “Subject” :O

In this dialog you have many other new options too… like:
Attach A file:

Attach a File

Attach a File

Take a picture or video:

Take a picture or video

Take a picture or video


Also send as text message

Also Send as text message

Also Send as text message

Now we press the “Send” button and its done..

Now lets check the yahoo mail inbox (I’ve Configured my [email protected] ‘s mail to come in yahoo’s inbox)
And there it is..

Mail From facebook to yahoo

Mail From facebook to yahoo

And also as i sent it to myself on faceboOk too theres one message in my faceboOk inbox too..

faceboOk Social Inbox

The mail from facebook just came into the yahoo mailbox like any other mail with subject: “Conversation with Snehil Websthal Khanor”

Yahoo mail inbox

Yahoo mail inbox

If we look at the sender of the mail.. we’ll se it came from “[email protected]

Now lets try replying to the mail and see wat happens..

Reply from yahoo mail to facebook mail

Reply from yahoo mail to facebook mail

and its sent..

eMail sent to user@facebook.com

eMail sent to [email protected]

and here it comes in my facebook’s Social inbox

FaceboOk Social Inbox

So now I have a mail in my faceboOk’s social inbox which looks just like ordinary mail.. notice the highlighted portion on the image.. see the icon on the right side.. this is what faceboOk uses to distinguish between “Saved Chats”, “eMails” and “messages” we’ll later see the icons for “Saved chats” and “Messages”.

Now lets try sending and receiving some attachment files… so here I attach and send a “rar” file as an attachment.

attachments.faceboOk.com

attachments.faceboOk.com

Attach rar file via faceboOk mail

Attach rar file via faceboOk mail

And its sent.. below is the screen shot from the yahoo’s inbox.. this means you can send just any file by archiving it as .rar file before sending..

Attach rar file via faceboOk mail

now lets try receiving attachments in the social inbox…

So this was basically the eMail part of the faceboOk’s “modern messaging system“. Insight of other features of “modern messaging system” would be posted in the next post “Insight: ‘faceboOk email’ aka faceboOk’s ‘modern messaging system’ Part – II” soon.

How to get Facebook mail id like [email protected]

In recent past FaceboOk launched “faceboOk messages” a new messaging system which some people are also referring to as faceboOk mail as faceboOk is providing addresses like [email protected] but Mark Zuckerberg (CoFounder and CEO) made it clear during the launch that it is not an email.
“It’s true that people will be able to have an @facebook.com email addresses, but it’s not email.”
-Mark Zuckerberg

Some people are also calling it as the “gmail killer“. The codename for the project is “Project TITAN” and it combines services like Instant Messaging, eMail, text messaging and regular messaging.
It also centralizes all your chats and long awaited “forward” feature in the messaging system is also finally here. It also allows to attach and send files and theres also an option to send a copy of the mail/message you are sending to the user as a text message too.
sendAsTextMessage
To activate “faceboOk messaging” you’ll have to request an invite and wait for your turn to get it.
To request an invite goto “FACEBOOK MESSAGING INVITATION PAGE” and register yourself in the queue for getting facebook mail id.

request Faceebook Mail Invitation

Your mail id would be same as your username for e.g if your profile page is http://facebook.com/snehilkhanor your mail id would be [email protected]
If you dont have your username then get it from “FACEBOOK USERNAME PAGE
When I got “faceboOk messaging” last week I also got few invites to invite people from my friend list but when I invited them they didnt actually got the access to “faceboOk messaging” instead they were enqueued in the invitation list. Strange game faceboOk showed there playing “Hard to get”.
Facebook Mail Invite
I’ll post a detailed review of new “faceboOk messaging” system later today or tommorow.
I hope you guys also get new “faceboOk messaging” soon as it is of no utility to me until no one else in my friend list have it.
Adieu untill next time 😉
