Facebook CEO MArk Zuckenber announces next generation messaging

The upside is that Facebook has launched it, but the downside is that this service is currently open by invitation. However, I’m going to tell you exactly how you can an invite for the new Facebook messaging service integrating email, messaging and chat all at once.

Mark Zuckerberg, the company founder, unveiled what he called a “convergent” modern messaging system on Monday that “handles messages seamlessly across all the ways you want to communicate.”

“It is true that people will be able to have facebook.com email addresses, but this is not email,”

“It handles email.”

Zuckenberg was speaking at the event held in the US city of San Francisco.

The intensifying rivalry between Facebook and search engine Google is expected to play a crucial role in shaping the future of the Internet.

Now here’s how you can get an invite for facebook’s next generation messaging service:

1. Simply go to http://www.facebook.com/about/messages
2. Log in if you aren’t already logged in
3. Click the green button that says “send me an invite”

You will shortly receive an invitation to try out the new system before everyone else does.
