There is no confirmation from Facebook Team yet. However talks started to spread across blogosphere that Project Titan, a webmail client by Facebook going to release on Monday during Facebook Event. Which allows the possibility of Facebook users to send and receive mails thereafter using their existing Facebook Username. This is kind of cool feature that many facebook users will love to use for. However, there is still a question in my mind, how its going to be a Gmail Killer. Gmail has the state of the art Spam protection and we are experiencing it today.
Facebook groups ( All New Facebook Groups ) are getting spammed at some point and facebook is still fighting a lot to get rid off users facebook wall being spammed with unwanted application requests,messages. Gmail beaten Yahoo mail service through its extra ordinary storage and mainly for Gmail Spam Filtering service people rely on Gmail than Yahoo.
Facebook has its own popular photos, events, and soon expecting to launch local deals product as well. So, possibly facebook can jump into the webmail client service as per the assumption and lets hope whether the project titan goes as rumour or becomes real 🙂
update: Mail.thefacebook.com is not actually facebook project titan. Its the mail portal for Facebook employees. Just wait for few more hours to let Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg talks about it in the Event.
