Facebook Titan or Project Titan is a Facebook feature that combines text messaging, instant messaging, regular messages and guess what? Emails. Some call it a “Gmail Killer” but facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that although people will be able to have an @facebook.com email address, it is not email. It’s really confusing, because Facebook Titan sounds like a Facebook Email just by the features alone. Facebook Titan took 15 months to develop, like other facebook features, it has privacy settings.
Facebook Titan is sighted as a potential competitor for google’s email service called Gmail. With the launch of Facebook Titan, will Gmail eventually be abandoned like any other email services? Looking through any facebook user’s perspective, having an @facebook.com email account is way cooler than having any other since all services they needed for email, social media, games and tons of things are located in one central application.
Having a Facebook Email is like having a universal ID that could be used for anything else, who knows maybe Facebook will continue to evolve and come up with an innovation that will take over other services such as payment processing, shopping carts and etc.
For sure Facebook Titan will be tested. Will it stand as worthy competitor in the field of email services? Well, that for sure is something we’re going to find out soon.
