Facebook Mail gets turned on

This morning I had the experience of having Facebook turn the new messaging functionality on my account. When there were rumours of Facebook revamping their messages functionality there were some that said Facebook were aiming to go up against GMAIL. So I guess it’s a pretty big deal.

My main concern so far with Facebook is the sheer volume of messages that have started to come through. Now if someone starts an instant chat to me while I am offline, a message appears in my inbox. I am sensing the inbox might get clogged pretty quick.

If you are still waiting on Facebook to turn this on in your account you can take a little preview of the process below.

Not sure if this is a good idea, but part of the process involves activating text notifications. The country drop down is preselected, I just had to choose my carrier.

All done
