Facebook discontinues its email service
Facebook has announced it will be discontinuing its email service, @facebook.com, and that all emails will be forwarded to your primary email on file.

If you do not have a primary email on file, you will no longer receive @facebook emails, and you can also turn off forwarding if you don't want the messages passed on.

Why the retirement? "Most people have not been using their @facebook.com email address," says the company.

Facebook launched the service in 2010, but it lacked basic features like subject lines, CC/BCCs and never caught on with the community.

In 2012, the company was criticized for making only the @facebook email visible, making many believe the social media giant was playing favorites with their own service.

    I'm so glad I've never used it, or else I'd be up to my neck in emails from all over the place.
