In an interesting move, Facebook is cancelling it’s email service where users once had firstname.lastname@example.org. Users who previously were able to send email to their Facebook email address will now see that mail forwarded to their login email address.
This is a pretty significan’t move for those who speculated a few years back that Facebook might dominate the email space and take on things like Gmail and Microsoft’s Outlook service. Some even speculated the death of email as a platform. When Facebook announced their email addresses for every user, they also removed users current email addresses from being visible on their platform. There was considerable outrage as well, as anyone who had their contacts sync’d with Facebook had inadvertently lost their contact’s original emails for Facebook email addresses.
