Will Facebook sound death knell for email?


PD*27012919

Email is dead, or will be dead. That’s the underlying message of CEO Mark Zuckerberg as he unveiled Facebook’s revamped messaging system in San Fracisco on Monday night. The popular networking service was supposed to launch a “Gmail killer” at the much-hyped event. But it was far from it. Nevertheless, the new avataar will raise network communication to a level that will shake the Gmails and Yahoos.
Zuckerberg himself painted the picture thus: “I don’t expect people to wake up tomorrow and say, ‘I’m going to shut down my Yahoo account or my Gmail account’…Maybe one day, six months, a year, two years out people will start to say this is how the future should work.”
