I am quite unsure if the new Facebook e-mail system has reached all its users at the same time but what I am definite of is that the @facebook.com e-mail address has opened up to its Swedish users today, 04 March 2011.
Update: A Facebook friend has just told me that this feature's been around in the Philippines since December 2010. Again, Sweden's late when it comes to updates like this. [Thanks Chrystian for the info]
The social networking giant, Facebook, has announced their up and coming own @facebook.com e-mail address some time in November 2010 and three months and three weeks later, here it is:
Facebook users have the choice to activate or not their own @facebook.com e-mail. So, that's something you do not need to worry about if you do not like the idea of having another e-mail add.
For those who are interested to try the new Facebook e-mail feature, you will be asked to activate your facebook e-mail add. Facebook users who have created their own Facebook public username name, your e-mail add will automatically match it. For example:
For those who haven't set their public username [if your username still ends in a series of numbers, for example: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1234567890] you will be asked to choose your own e-mail identity.
Another great thing worth checking out in this new e-mailing system of Facebook is the improved chat tool. Chat messages will appear on both your Facebook e-mail inbox and the chat box. Now, you do not need to chat with friends using the tiny chat box *whew!*. All you have to do is to click the enlarge button [see that right arrow on the pic below?] or click on the chat message on your in box and you'll have a better and larger chat box [refer to the next pic].
So there you go. The new and better Facebook e-mail. Have a great Facebooking day everyone!
