Citing the antiquated beast that e-mail has become, Mark Zuckerberg, the chief executive officer and creator of the Internet-dominator Facebook, rolled out today with a new feature that he says won’t be the death of e-mail, but rather will offer a new way to synergize all communication between two people.
Facebook Messages will combine text messages, instant messages, e-mail and messages sent through the massive online system into one neat, little package.
Though one has to question the wisdom in cataloging every remark ever made to one person, especially those smart comments made in the heat of battle that years down the road won’t offer any type of warm fuzzies.
I suppose the question here is, will Facebook get the privacy settings right the first time, this time? Let’s hope so.
