Messages are solely for exchange a few words with your near and dear ones, so it makes sense to organize primarily around people. Its easier for you if you keep all of your messages together in one place, whether they are sent over chat, email or SMS. You can see everything you’ve discussed with each friend as a single conversation. Facebook’s new messaging system is basically an integration of a spam filter and a unification of different channels to allow users an “easier” method of communication. SMS, email, IM, and Facebook messages are all being addressed by the changes.
The younger users who already prefer SMS and Facebook over traditional email systems, will shift the mailing system for future generations is something that makes the conventional e-mail systems of today to history. Facebook, with more than 500 million users communicating with each other daily, is looking to reinvent communications & not just email. The company introduced a system that strives to make it more efficient, personal and simpler. And, of course, Facebook wants to make it seamless across the platforms and devices we’re already using.
Somewhat trying to emulate Gmail’s Priority Inbix,the system is also somewhat independent of the platform you’re using. People will be able to send and receive messages from their mobile phones, computers, through IM or Facebook. The rollout to users will be a slow one – over the next couple of months – and initially will be spread via. The idea is to let people get used to it and offer some feedback to Facebook about it.
