Facebook Reveals “Project Titan” – A New Modern Messaging System
During this mornings press event in San Francisco, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealed that Project Titan is not “e-mail” as speculated, but an entirely new “modern messaging system”.
Although each Facebook user will be given an @facebook.com e-mail address, the primary focus of the new messaging system is to allow users to communicate in real-time, via IM, SMS, or Facebook, wherever they are.
According to Zuckerberg, 350 million users send an astounding average of 4 billion messages through Facebook daily. Taking this into consideration, along with statements from teenage users that e-mail is too slow, Facebook developers sat down to design a seemless, cross-platform and spam-free messaging system.
Currently in Beta, the system will be rolled out to users over the next few months via an invite-only process.

As soon as we have access to the new system, we will have screenshots and tutorials made available!
