Facebook Acquires, Set to Launch E-mail Service

It has been revealed that Facebook has acquired the domain. This news comes just days before its special event, where it is set to reveal an overhauled version of Messages that works like e-mail.

In September, the American Farm Bureau sold the domain to an undisclosed buyer. Looking up the domain’s whois reveals that MarkMonitor, a brand protection and domain management company, is the’s registrar. However, Domain Name Wire has revealed that the domain’s whois has been updated to reflect that Facebook (Facebook) is the domain’s administrator.

A recent report from All Facebook claims that Facebook is using internally, but doesn’t quite know what Facebook intends to do with it. At the same time, The New York Times and TechCrunch claim that the company’s impending Messages overhaul will utilize the domain for user e-mail accounts.

What does that mean for Most likely, will become the e-mail domain of the company’s 1,400+ employees. Yahoo does something similar; its staff uses e-mail addresses instead in order to avoid confusion between its employees and the hundreds of millions of users of its e-mail service.

Here’s our question: do users really want a e-mail address? Would they actually use it in conjunction or in place of their current e-mail addresses? Let us know what you think.
