A source with inside knowledge revealed that “Facebook is completely rewriting their messaging product and is preparing to launch a fully featured webmail product, internally known as “Project Titan” – unofficially said to be called a "Gmail killer." Project Titan, while being a webmail service featured on Facebook, will have a few additions to make it much more accessible to those who use messaging regularly. First of all, you'll get your own email address; it'll be your vanity name (the one you chose for your Facebook.com/username address) at Facebook.com. Project Titan will also provide POP and IMAP support for the addresses, meaning that you'll be able to add the account to various third party services, and even mobile devices, should you desire to. In short, it'll be exactly like a regular email address, except it'll go through Facebook. Email is all about identity. And Facebook is ahead of everyone else in the identity game via Facebook Connect. Facebook says more than 60 million people log in to 80,000 third party websites each month via Facebook Connect.
