After over two months of 'by invite only' test period, Facebook has begun rolling out @facebook.com email addresses to it's users. The new Facebook email service helps speed up how users communicate with one another, through email.
The three main features includes seamless messaging, conversation history and a social inbox. Users can choose a @facebook.com email address, and with that email, they're able to have instant inbox alerts.
Microsoft's Outlook Web Apps plays a role in the Facebook email inbox. With Web Apps integration, users are able to use Microsoft Office documents like Word, Excel and PowerPoint to share with friends and family, a feature already integrated with Facebook and docs.com.
Users can also connect their account with Windows Live SkyDrive, offering up to 25GB of online storage for school work, photos, and personal documents you can share across computers, friends or use as additional storage.
To claim your email address, log in to Facebook, go to "messages" and you'll see an upgrade option.
